Default Yokomo BC or Integy 16x5x6 charger

Hey guys,

After evaluating the cost and functionalities of many chargers, I came down to these 2 chargers.
The Yokomo BC
The Integy 16x5x6/CDC Ver 6.0B charger.

Can someone here gives me feedback/comment/experience on these 2 chargers?

I've got a CDC V6.0b - It's great (my first one had a problem with the fans not working when charging - though it still charged properly). Got it replaced - and the new one is excellent - 20amp discharge, no false peaking, resistance measurement.

However, I am now looking at the Yokomo for 2 reasons - temp. charging and upto 9.9amp charge. The CDC charges up to 7amps - if it would charge a little higher I would stick with it.

my 2 cents

i am using the CDC ver 6/B and its ev everything i expect from a quality charger. i also heard about the temp. peak of the yokomo charger. i am not sure if this is accurate but i set my CDC to a peak detect of 3mV this enables me to get my batts peaked at the ideal temp of batts. (125'F). in short it acts like a temp peak as well.

Default integy

i have a 16x5 and love it, the buzzer was a little loud so i added a switch to disable it being able to charge up to 9amps would be nice.
if you need to check temps get a digitail multimeter with temp feature, got mine from sears for $29

i own neither, i own a pulsar.
but i'd say get the Yokomo BC due to the extra feature (temp charge, 12 cells, upto 9.9A)

my 2 cents.
