I use two chargers.
Novak Millenium pro - excellent charger, has an annoying tone that indicates batt is done but doesnt stop until you acknowledge. Fine with me but pits buds hate it. Also programs Novak ESC, if you're into that. no false peak lockout so I also have
APS Dyno charger - Excellent with peak lockout, seem to need it for my 12th scale batts. also has a motor breakin program as well as motor test. Test allows a motor check and also powers my lathe if it is needed. Doesnt have step charging but can be upgraded to this option easily. The motor test has a sennsor based no load rpm guage and stand.
I use 23 AMP PS. Radio shack US carries it for 100. A friend brought it back from vacation for me. Seems like overkill but two chargers working at 5-6 amps is a cake walk for it. I used to have a bulk discharger and equalizer plugged into it but have moved to DPD.
My old 10A PS just sits now. Pyramid. Heavy but VERY clean power.
My wish list now includes the MM CTX-C but will wait til the price is in my range. I think I would run 3 chargers for onroad just to have tuning access to my APS. But, I need good lockout software because some of my race packs are very sensitive.
Good luck

yeah. ctx is a very good charger..but price is not good...

and need power supply..

when i went to korea(much more is korean company)

i saw that ctx is about $200(convert to canadian dollar)
and much more 25A power supply is about $170

total about 400...

I think that i don't need that good charger..

so i'm looking for


this charger.. sjpropo is also korean company..

so they sell their charger internationally(OEM)

maybe you guys will know what it is


this is same as pirahna digital.

duratrax sell pirahna digital just put there brand name on that product

I've had a few chargers over the years.... including many of the ones listed here. For the money, the Duratrax ICE is one of the best value chargers on the market today.

The much-more chargers are nice... compact, and charge well. They are a little more $$$, but when you are dealing with race packs that are over $100 a piece, you want to take care of them - making sure you don't overcharge/overheat them.

The most "bling" charger on the market right now is the Spintec ICC. It charges each cell individually so you get absolute peak voltage in each cell - but it comes with a price tag that can give some people a heart-attack.

Depending on your packs - buy your charger accordingly. If you have $300-$400 worth of batteries for your cars - don't expect a $50 charger to help them live a long and solid life.

LRP Chargers (2 of them) and LRP power supply. Any decent switching power supply will do tough. They are lighter and more compact than the old skool heavy transformer ones. Make sure you look at the constant amps, not the surge amps.
