Default Looking for another charger

I currently have 3 chargers ICE, APS, and a Turbo 35...I am looking to add another to my set am I am looking for some advice... I like the turbo and the other two do the job but not as well so I don't want any more of those... What do you guys suggest for another charger? I am looking to spend under 200 if possible... thanks in advance

Check out the new Team Checkpoint charger. It's like a nicely updated Ice charger. I've got two MuchMore CTX-C chargers which I like a lot but I'm thinking about trading them for the new Checkpoint.

I'm also in the market for a new charger and i've got a question for ya.
I also own a turbo 35 and am looking for a second (lesser priced)charger. In your opinion, what is it about the other two chargers that don't do the job as well as the turbo 35? For example, the other two don't give as strong as a charge or the motor run in feature isn't as good etc. Thanks

In my opinion the ICE false peaked too often, seemed to imoprove lately but i had several for a few weeks in a row...The APS, is a good charger, but I just do not really like it for some reason, it seems to get my cells hotter than my GFX, even when using the temp sensor...Overall the GFX is far superior to both ICE and APS, mainly because of the cycle data for me... also I like the 35 amp discharge for the cells... Hope this helps... The checkpoint looks nice since it seems to be a big improvement opver the ice...
