I think the Duratrax Ice is better for the same price.

Do you want a good charger or do you want a charger that doesn't need a power supply?

It looks like it would probably do the job just fine but if you can afford a seperate P/S in addition to the charger you may want to look into the Orion, Advantage, Duratrax Ice, Much More cell master or other DC only chargers.

If this is all your budget allows it is probaby the best choice but you should buy a us version (integy brand) to get a warrenty.

It's not that AC/DC chargers are better (although generally they have more/better features), it's that you can hook up anything to your power supply. You can hook up your discharger, motor dynos, cooling fans- anything you can think of! It's versatility is comparable to the invention of personal transponders.
