Not familiar with Annsman. Are you in the UK? If so someone from the UK should answer because what's on the shelves here in the US is different than what's over there.

What kinds of batteries will you be charging and will you be racing or bashing?

Duratrax ICE seem to be the pick of the entry lvl comp chargers. Only downside i can see is its a 12v DC only charger (must run of a car battery or 12v power supply) But has top features for the price. Also does Lipo for down the track.

Hi birdy

to be honest there is only one chargers that i would suggest to any racer and that is the Protrak charger, by far the best charger on the market apart from the spintec ICC. Check out the website @ www.pro-trak.co.uk. or give phil a call on 0191 2521330 he's a great chap to speak to.

The ctx-cellmaster is okay. The PRO's wont use it if they suck. though...

I recommend the new TeamCheckpoint charger(all in one charger, powers ur lathe and also does lipo).

CHEERS!
