Default What charger for lipo's?

I'm getting back into the hobby after 3 years away and i need a new charger for the new gen lipo batteries.

I was looking at the CORE one
http://www.racing-cars.com/products.asp?recnumber=10594

Or a MuchMore...
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-lim...p-p-21036.html

I can't find to much info on the CORE charger. I had a muchmore cell master for my NiMH cells which was great.

Is there any real difference between these two chargers or is there one i should be looking at?

Thanks in advance.

If you are looking at a Much More unit, look at the Silent Charger Platinum as that will charge at the correct rate. The one you list will only charge at 1 amp.

Check out the Thunder power 610C same options as the ones your looking at but has a higher charge rate and also is software upgradeable that you can do yourself.

I have to agree, I have both the Core UDC-20 & the Thunder Power TP-610 & I love 'em both, but the TP-610 does trump the Core just a bit(like in being able to charge at up to 10 amps, while the Core can do no more than 5, & its upgradability via firmware downloads). I think you'll be fine with either one, but given the choice, I'd buy the TP-610.....
