Default Good charger

I have a Hitec X2 AC Plus and looking to upgrade. It only charges up to 10A and discharges at 5A. Looking for something with more juice! I will be running an external power supply. Trying to get away from the entry level chargers. Been racing many years and never really had a good quality charger. Although I love my Hitec, it recently stopped charging my batteries fully. I have the voltage cut off set at 4.25v per cell, but when I put a meter on it, I canít get anything over 4.18v. And it fluctuates from 4.16-4.18v. Not where it should be. So, that being said, looking to step it up this year and get some quality stuff. Any advice helps! Thanks in advance.

I think you will be needing separate power supply and charger setup. Without knowing the particulars of your needs, I'd start looking here...

If I had the extra cash to spend, I'd be looking at one of the iChargers. Since that is not gonna happen, I'd put my money on one of them Turnigy Reaktors. I'm sure others will stop by and offer their thoughts.

Leaning towards the iCharger X6. Itís conpact and I like the display and ease of use. Also has an auto save feature I like. I need it to be extremely accurate as my last charger read .05v lower than it actually was. Didnít actually notice till I went to tech inspection before a race. I was glad to see a response including it.

I've always wanted an iCharger, just never pulled the trigger, guys I used to fly with all used them and had nothing but good things to say. I to am running what I'd call entry level, but am super happy with them, I use 150w 10amp chargers for $50 each off amazon.

Are you using the HTRC C150 charger?
