Default BATTERY ZAPPERS ARE THEY WORTH THE MONEY

I have been looking around for a battery zapper but are worth the money or is it better to buy new batteries. I have looked at the INTEGY XIPP DCX3300 XAPPER BATTERY ZAPPER is it any good?

I would recommend getting the Spintec Battery Manager instead. Beats a zapper in every way: is safer, more reliable, much smaller, and from what I have seen more effective.

Agree with Ottoman.

Why zap packs that can only go up to 1.18 when there are 1.20 on the market. Tech does keep changing.....

umm actually battery zappers keep your cells nice and fresh. a lot of people use them in the oval community.

sure new cells come out, but even before them a zapper can keep your packs in tip top shape.

whether its worth the money or not is up to you, but it DOES help.

If they're worth the money or not depends on how much you value your money.
I personally value top charger more than battery zapper.
Let's put it this way. When you're constantly fighting for top three in A main they're probably worth the money
