Default best "back up/second" charger?

i have a turbo 35, which i have grown quite fond of (except its immense size), and i have kept my novak millenuim, but i find i would like a different secondary charger, ideally that can charge at over 7 amps, and can do motors.

i was looking at the LRP pulsar, since that looked to be ideal, and its very small as well, could any suggest any other chargers?

also, i have been going back and forth between my rivergate and my novak powersupply. i had been using the rivergate for quite some time, but its just so big and heavy. i switched back to my novak, but then i realized that i can only use 10 amps, and if i charging two batteries each at 7 amps, that doesnt work too well. besides the rivergate, is there really any other good high amp powersupply that is small and light?

I use the Millenium Pro, if you want motor run that Pulsar looks great to me. Other than that maybe an Integy or Reedy but I don't think they will run motors.

I have the millenium Pro also, it's great. Much cheaper compared to the Turbo 35, in fact it would make a great main charger if you didn't want to run your lathe and discharge packs.

you can use a 300W power supply for computer, with a little modifications, will give you 12V15A and cost about $30

I use the CE Pitbull as my #2.

I keep my T-35 mainly for motor run, and discharge. I rarely use it to charge, other than when i first get to the track and want to charge a couple practice packs at the same time..
