I just picked up the Duratrax Onyx 230. It probably isn't the best but it is small, has AC power built in which means no need for power supply. Charges up to 7 amps to 4.20 volts and has a backlit display for $80.

i have the checkpoint right now and really like it except that it wont fully charge the battery to the 4.22 volts that we are allowed to go up to at my local track. i always seem to have to peak it on another charger b4 i race. so for me the checkpoint will be a extra charger and i wont use it to finish the job i guess. im thinking about getting the lrp pulsar 3 what does everyone think of that one?

GFX is the best!
Its not cheap.

Why is it the best?
Its the only charger on the market that can be upgraded.:thumbsup:

The last charger you will buy.

The GFX is not the only charger than can be updated. The TP 610C can have its firmware updated via your laptop.

Now I have both a CE turbo 35 BL and a couple of 610C's both work well, but the CE allows 4.22 volts while the current firmware on the 610 only allows charge to 4.2.
