I think they are all good, but I went for the Integy 16x5 over all the others mentioned. Best thing i have bought in a while. This charger rocks. Just ask Chris T. and Bary B.

Check out the "reviews" for my review of the Duratrax Intellipeak Pulse charger. It discharges and cycles the cells. Has an LCD display, comes with its own power supply and is great with NiCD and NiMH batteries. All for $99.99! Sounds like its perfect for what your looking for.

I do not own Integy/Eagle Charger, but they look OK and prices are decent. Performance: other people have make good comments.

I expect you are not looking for high-end charger.

PRO TRAK.

It is the only charger is small yet can match, can temp charge, can tranform into a phone when you need one. Very Important


Serious. novak mill, integya 16x9, orion d68, eargle acdc, Yokomo (new charger), pro trak, turbo BL. etc.

Look for a charger that discharge up to 20amp

a charger that can charge from one cell to eight.

can cycle your batterys.

Got step down volt.

I think the eargle ACDC is a very good buy.

I would go for Integy 16x5 with a power supply if I don't have or want to buy a single cell discharge tray.

I would go for Millenium Pro with N-Power if I already have or want to buy a discharger and Novak TC2.

You can't go wrong wichever you choose.

I presume you already checked the review here.

Well here's what you can do.........

16x5 from Integy- Now they are all backlit!!! Very good charger, well worth the price!!!

For a power supply you can get the Samlex 23 amp model from Ham Radio Outlet. It is like 99 bucks, small and reliable!!! I run two chargers and my Motor checker off of it, and it keeps going and going!!

Go to www.hamradio.com search for Samlex 1223 20 amp PS. They have it at 20amp, but it is rated at 23amps continuous, and 25 surge!! Well worth it!! It has gotten real popular in the last year here in California and the price went up 10 bucks!!!

Don't forget about the Reedy Quasar Pro Chargers. Nice little units, no need for an external power supply but if you got one you can use it. Available now at KT Hobbies for 184.99. Shameless plug I know.

I got my Reedy Quasar Pro last Friday, it keep fasle peaking on my 3000HV. I bring it to race Saturday and it just burnt up at the track for no reason. Everything shutdown, no display, no beeping! I'm Pretty disappointed and I'm sending it back Monday and will get my 2nd 16X9 instead. I have good luck with my INDI 16X9 and I just want to give the Quasar a try becasue of its smaller size, I guess that's a bad decision.

The quaser charger and the duratrax intelli peak digital or whatever costs the same. Yet the duratrax has discharge, cycle, and a screen (more features). What makes the quaser better? And what does the pit wizard do? I am willing to go about 150$ on a charger. WHich should I pick.

Thanks for all the input guys, I "think" I have made up mymind. I am going to go with the Duratrax just because it comes with the most features for the least amount of money. I have read up on it a bit and it seems like it will suit my needs. Onc again, thanks a lot for the suggestions.....now if only I could get a competition electronics, but I guess money doesn't grow on trees!!!!

Based on Darkseid's review, the Duratrax sounds like a good choice. It definately does seem to have the most features for that price range, and you can always up-grade later.

Good luck,
Speedo

I just got a 16x5 power supply combo, and i love it, the only thing that may bother me is the loud beeping tone that they have. But it can be turned down, it has been done.

Consider Apex Sigma Plus. It's equal to the Duratrax, but at www.integy.com, it goes for 90$. I've been using one for 1 year and from a value-for-money-point-of view, I can only recommend it. Besides, it's extremely easy to use, you don't have to re-programme the cut-off voltage, if you're using both NiMh and NiCd.

PS: Your name sound quite Nordic, correct?
