I use a Duratrax ICE with a 15A Power Supply and an Electrifly Equinox Balancer. If the LRP Pulsar 3 would've been out when I purchesed my ICe I would have went with it, I love my Pulsar 1.

Its not the best, but it works without issue for me.. GT power V5 balance charger. I've checked the balance on the cells and it is actually balancing them unlike some other brands (so I am told neway).

I am about ready to send my CE GFX back for the Lipo upgrade and will be getting one of the Blinky balancers as well. I know there are other chargers out there smaller, but this is a cheaper option for me.
