Default Best Charger???

Hey guys

What do you guys consider to be the best charger for the current NiMh cells we use???

I'm currently using an LRP Pulsar, but was looking at a Turbo 35 GFX, what's peoples experience with the GFX?

Thanks

If you don't mind spending the extra cash ( or credit if you wish ) for a Turbo 35 gfx, I would go Turbo. I have had one for almost a year now and it is awesome.

I didn't like the GFX as well as some the others.

The display seemed to wash out under certain lights and outside very easy.

The "best charger" dont exists - if there were, we would all have it It depends on preferences, needs and budget.

Default Best Charger

I have been using a CDC V6.0/B for 1 year and have decided to upgrade soon, might get a Pro-trak mainly for it single cell function. I think only a CDR-5000 and Pro-trak have it.

Default KO PROPO

The Ko Propo Charger is pretty awesome. Just hook up your battery press start and set your charge rate and that is it. Nice and small as well. Only draw back is it does not have a built in discharger. But they do make one that will hook up with their charger.

Later,

Thanks Tres, the only thing missing is a custom face plate.

BTW your comment about the GFX display is correct, it is almost impossible to see outdoors.

Yep these are by the far the best chargers I've ever used! Small easy to use and very accurate!

Good luck!
