The much more is better for on road with the charging style that is has



The ice is better for off road or sum thing like that with the other thing that it does!

Because of this statement I would say the Ice is better for you, it has almost all the features of the CTX and can be had for almost half the price.

CTX- $210 at Speedtech
Ice- $130 at Tower, spend $20 more $ and get $25 off. Ice is way cheaper.

I use an Ice and some of the so called big guns use the Cell Master. Well I have no lack of performance from my cells and no problems with the charger at all. For the price the Ice has no equals. Don't let the Duratrax Name fool you into thinking it is not a good top of the line charger. I just can't see spending the extra 100 bucks when I get the same performance for 100 bucks.

Okay, so it took 14 post to sort out that the CTX actually is MuchMore expensive than the Ice

So many says CTX... But none have explained, WHY the CTX should be MuchMore better.

Wondering how many posts it'll take, before someone posts some REASONS instead of (useless? ) OPINIONS...
