Default Indi 16x5v6 AC/DC

I was looking at this charger and the Novak Millenium. Well, most people at my track have the Novak Millenium and I was wandering how good is this Indi charger? Would you guys consider it to be better than the Novak? Well, I was thinking about getting the Indi and wanted more opinions about this charger. What do you guyst think about this charger?

I love my older 16x5, it has so much more to give than just a charger.
It can charge, discharge, cycle, and has a display to show all the information I ever need.

I already ordered new 16x5v6.0. This should be even better with built in torpedo function, 1 cell charge capability, memory function.

Too much to list.

I have a millennium and just picked up a 16x5v6. I like the indi much better! I has so many more features than the millennium. I like the boost charge where is takes a fully charged cool pack and quick discharges it for about 30 secs or so and then repeaks it to warm it up, the 10 memory slots that records charge setups and batt info, the discharge function is great too!
The only advantage of the millennium is that is can charge at a higher rate, 8 amps vs 7 for the indi, but I never charge that high anyways, and the Pro has the Pit Wizard. But the new generation of esc's (GT7) has onboard programming!
I would definitly recommend the 16x5v6! I think its the next best charger to a Turbo 35 but less than half the price!

I use the 16x5bl, and the newest 16x5v6 and love them both! I not only use it to charge my 6 cell packs, but it will charge my receiver packs in my nitro cars, and also my transmitter pack! Its well worth the money! I highly recommend the power supply combo too, its nice to be able to charge indoors plus if you have a motor lathe, or tire truer its very convienent to have.
Other web sights that have these chargers: www.speedtechrc.com & www.stormerhobbies.com

The millenium pro is already obsolite, not that you cant buy it anymore, but its main feature, the pit wizzard, has already been replaced by the new cyclone replacement, the GT-7. We'll just have to see what novaks next move in chargers will be since more chargers are moving towards total battery managemant in one package.

The 16x7 is a good charger also...same functions as the Quasar Pro. 'coz they're both made by Eagle racing. 16x5V6 is still better than both of them..has more functions.

Try this link:

http://secure400.automatedshops.com/...11102471351.92

I think that should take you right to Integy's page on the 16x5v6.

No it's not the Indi 16x5v6...

But it is the Eagle CDC Version 6 which is exactly the same!!! The only difference is the small decal to the right of the LCD display...
