Default Integy Charger Upgrade

Has anyone sent their 16x3 chargers in for this? Is it worth it?

I just noticed it and i'm wondering if it's worth sending my 16x3v2.5 pro(my only charger) in for the upgrade. The page dosen't mention any features or differences.
Any opinions?

Ah, okay, I feel dumb, they are running this special on all their chargers. To upgrade to this one will be $65. I don't see a difference besides it showing capacity in mAH instead of seconds and 2 and 10 amp discharge.

By the way, can someone explain the similarities between the Indi chargers and duratrax chargers? The entire 16x3 series is identical, feature wise, but has different cases. Are both brands supplied by eagle?

Both lines are made by Apex www.apexhk.com Apex also make the Robbe chargers, which are sold in Europe.

As for the upgrade, if you are charging NiMh batts., I would rather spend the money on a new charger where you can switch of the trickle charge. Also consider a linear charger, it seems that all the battery matchers agree that linear charge is the best for NiMh.
