Default hitec x1 touch,orion touch or icharger 308

Guys I am looking at swapping out my current Hitec x2 charger is great but I really want a AC charger so I do not half to carry a Power Supply. I know the Icharger needs a power supply I only added this charger because it seems to be popular at the track. I only charge at 4amp on all my batteries as I only run with 2s shorties, so charging at 10amps ect not important to me. With that said what charger would you buy and why? Does the Hitec x1 touch and Orion touch show IR? And does the Icharger really help Lower IR in batteries? Please post up you information...

I had the orion and really liked it. I believe it does show internal resistance over the whole pack, but I am not sure it does individual cells.

im not sure how you would go about lowering internal resistance in any noticeable way just by changing chargers, however the higher amperage charge/disharges that get some heat into the pack do lower the internal resistance.

For what your wanting to do I would choose the Orion touch over the Hitech X1 and yes the Orion does IR but not per cell just over the whole pack. For your wants/needs the icharger duo is awesome but way more charger than it sounds you have use for.
