Post Integy's NEW top of the line charger

It's called the 16X-G40...
Has anyone heard anything else exciting about this new charger?
It sort of looks like the Futaba CDR-5000 with the silver case and large backlit screen. It also has multiple charging profiles and a 40A discharge; one thing that it has that the Futaba doesn't is MOTOR RUN , yeah baby!
looks and sounds interesting...

OMG, Is this a charger to end all chargers.

All we need is a computerized cup holder with temp monitoring to keep your drinks cool at the pits.

FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON YA RIGHT. But for those who strive to fly on the track it is essential to have a lot of these things.

Does anyone know about the discharger that the first picture shows? I heard it was a 30 amp individual cell discharger that goes down to .0v. Can someone confirm?

That first one is sweet. Does everything the CDR5000 and the GFX does plus you don't need a freekin power suply. Very compact. I think I might hold out on buying a GFX just yet.

Just checked Integy's website. First charger retails at $399.99 and the second one retails at $259.99. Finally Integy finds a way to discharge over 20amps. About time.

The only downside is you cant break in motors over 13 amps. Hard to set amp draw on 7t motors without a GFX.

why do you need to break in a 7 turn? you pull the throttle once and the brushes are seated

For you guys who think you dont need a power supply, Every Integy charger Ive owned that is AC/DC does not work as well without the power supply. The power supply thats in the charger just cant compete with a rivergate 30 amp. Usually I find that the charger will over heat when you start doing some heavy discharging. I still use mine but i just hook it up to my powersupply. I aslo noticed that my charger (16x7) doesnt charge packs that have been dead shorted until you put some juice in them. Just points to consider.

1. 30 amp discharge - Yes
2. 0.00v cutoff - Yes

The INDI 030 discharge board is designed for stock and 19T racing, 30A discharge rate. It is the most advanced discharge / equalizing tray designed for high performance r/c car racing. The unit works on all high power Ni-Cd and Ni-MH sub-C size battery cells. This is a 0.0V cutoff discharge board, the unit deep discharge each cell and significant benefits include charge capacity increase, discharge capacity increase, actually runtime increase, average discharge voltage increase, reduced peak voltage and reduced internal resistance. This type of discharger can discharge each cell individually and there is no chance for cell reversal damage to occur. The basic operation of the 030 is pretty simple and straight forward. Easy t ouse clamp type switch with 3 pins connector on each terminal, built-in twin cooling fan, requires 12VDC input. The unit is bipolar, meaning that you can install your battery without worrying about the polarity. The 030 draws 30A rate from each cell individually.
