Default quality of charge question

Take the same pack with the same charging parameters and charge it on each of the high-end chargers such as GFX, KO (the one Hara uses), LRP and upcoming Futaba, etc. -- what will the difference be? Why?

Most of all the high-end chargers will work equally fine, if that is what you are trying to get at.

yep....you don't need to put too much emphasis on the charging quality....

i.e. atsushi hara uses the ko charger and this unit not even has volt threeshold adjusting.....

any high end charger will work great on any level of racing...

coolrc, a charged pack is a charge pack but some chargers have a amerape ramp built into them with some having two or more ramps therefore creating more punch in the beginning while not frying up the battery from hitting it so hard when discharged.

I know that the Integy 16x5v6 has that kind of "boost" charging mode, where it lowers the IR of the cells so you get more punch for the first minutes of a race.
