I have owned and own several Novak millenium and mill. pro chargers. With the newer Nimh cells that we have today, the millenium did not charge the cells properly and was inconsistent. The Millenium is a discontinued charger I thought. Novak's charger now is the Rhino.

I really like the LRP competition charger(Blue) and now have 2 of them. Very satisfied with the charge my 3800's receive plust the small size and motor break in is very nice. Also change charge amperage on the fly.

I have heard good things about the MM charger but I don't own one yet.

I have a CE 35. I was happy with it until it broke after five years(I used it extensively). I have never used CE pit bull. But everything CE seems to be excellent.

the new advantage can charge lipoly cells, so i guess that is a plus with the way the battery technology is starting to go

MM is capable of charging LiPo since it came out

Light, small does everything apart powering a lathe
I'm very pleased with has more functions compared with pulsar

I would go for the ICE, as its the only charger being compared thats out that can charge lipo to full capacity. Might consider the new advantage when its out.

Get the Pulsar or MuchMore both are very competetive and have the best peak detection technology. Plus you can adjust delta peak and charge amps plus theres a backlight on both. If the pros use it to charge there Batteries then it must be good.
