Default INDI 16X9v6

Is the INDI 16X9v6 a good charger?
I'm mainly going to use it for receiver batteries, transmitter batteries, Mini-T batteries and starter box batteries.
I'm currently running nitro cars, but I'm looking at getting back into electrics.
I need a charger that will do the jobs now, and still be good when I do get back into electrics.
I don't want to have to buy another charger later.

Great charger - it'll do all those cells at a good price (assuming you're using stick packs to power the starter box - it won't do lead acid or gel cells)

Yeah, I have stick packs for my starter box.
Is it easy to use?
I've been out of electric racing for awhile now.
I'm sort of lost when it comes to battery charging.

Just to give yah a heads up of what I heard.
I got the 16x7 instead of the 9.

There are a couple of features that the 9 will have that most people won't ever really use. That being said. My situation was that I needed something to hold me until I get a Turbo GFX. So I saved 50 bucks. Consensus was that if you have the money go with the 9 instead of the 7. just incase.

hope that helps, either is a good charger.

I would chage at 0.8A or thereabouts with 5mV per cell peak for NiMH/10mV per cell for NiCd.

The charger is pretty easy to use once you get used to it - seems a bit intimidating at first because you can get lost in the menus.

I'm sort of writing an alternative manual for the 16x5 - but it's taking longer than I hoped!

I've just got the first part of my alternative guide to the v6 chargers on the web

www.v6charger.tk

(PS those free .tk domains are really easy to set up, and it's a good control panel too! Not sure how rich the island will get from this though...)
