Default Best Charger

Hi all,

I'm in the market to buy a better charger. What is the best charger out these days? Or what are people mostly buying?

Thanks for your time.




BTW We all know the true best Charger is LT. Go Chargers!

Default GFX

WOW, CE GFX is over $400? Is it that good? I am reading the specs, am I missing something? I don't see why it is some much more expensive?

Thanks for your replys.

it depends on your needs and how much you want to spend.

Some people would find a huge charger on their pit table takes up too much room.

Is LiPo being used or in your future?

I have been using an Orion Advantage since they first came out over 3 years ago. I have the first non-lipo version and the newer lipo version. They have performend flawlessly. They are small, versitile and in-expensive when compared to other brands. In addition, Orion has great product service and are at the forefront of lipo battery design.

I am guessing CE turbo 35 GFX is were it is at? But yet it does not do lipo!

I still don't understand why GFX is better? twice as better? Since the cost is twice then others.

Thanks,

Thanks,
it just charges the battery's better thats it nothing more nothing less.
and it discharges the whole pack at 35 A with no pulse.
and gives you graphs to see how your packs are and you can plug it in you pc to print it

That's what i'm feeling. That the GFX is all hipe (i am sure its a great product). But for the price and the freature list does not match.
