Wait and get the Spintec ICC charger it will be out soon and it will change the way everyone charges that battery packs..

Check the thread here in RC tech. Then you will know why I say wait.

How about Nosam Stealth Charger?
Heard that it is similar to LRP Puslar 2, same components, same company except different branding. Similar to Toyota & Lexus....

Can someone give their views/ranking on these 3 chargers:
1) Team much more cell master
2) Orion Advantage charger
3) Nosam stealth charger

MuchMore and Pulsar2 is good for value. The high-end charger is Turbo GFX and ProTrak.
If you can get Straight Record Breaker charger, I only hear nothing but great result!!

the i.c.c. charger would definitaly be worth to waitbut it wonīt revolutionize the charger market-donīt expect too much from individual cell charging.

i recommend buying the duratrax ice charger, if you have more $ to spend get a cdr 5000 or pro-trak.

Well I think your wrong when it comes to indvidual cell charging you are basicly keeping your cells matched...not just on discharge numbers but now on charged numbers hence making too things happen...
1) Your cells will not get over heated because with the ICC each cell is monitored so never does one cell get too hot.
2) It allows each and every cell to have its complete charge. And hence you get better runtime and better voltage...
Is there not a revolution in that...
Plus a third
3) You cells will last longer and that saves money Hence making you and me and everyone in between very happy.
Take Care & GOD Bless

If you have cash, the icc is the shxt. Wait for the response from icc owners, then decide what you want again. i CERTAINLY will not want to buy a charger now. be paitent and wait for the icc. that's the hardest part of htis hobby, timing when to buy your gear to your maximal benefit.

The Ice is a very good charger. Compared to the Integys and the Pulsars, they are much better chargers, both in quality and features.

I had experience with both the Much More CTX Charger and the Nosram Stealth. Cannot complain of either, they are both top of the range chargers. So let's see the main differences between each product:

- Nosram Stealth has Motor Run (to bed-in brushes, etc) - CTX No

- CTX Charger can be pre-programmed for Automatic Step Charging - Stealth Manual
- CTX Charger has heat detect too - Stealth No

This is what comes in mind at the moment. Both great products

If you have the fundage: The CTX turbo 35. Currently, I have two duratrax Ice chargers and I they do more than I expected. I am looking forward to the spintec ICC chargers when they come out.

So very true...
I also like the Orion Advatage as it also has a stopwatch so I can do lap times for a pal, and work on my car as it only takes one second to look up and hit a button. Gotta love it...plus step charging and motor run it and it gives you amp draw so that helps too. But for price the ICE is tops.
I got word that the ICC will be out in August but depending on where you live they could take a little longer as I know in the US that Horizon is the distibutor and they can sometimes ship to prefered customers/hobby shops first.
Just what I have experienced from Horizon but I have also had some realy good luck with them also just statign what has happened.

And no my Advatage doesn't look like a toy here is what it will look like very soon.
