Default Budget balance charger 10amps 4s lipo

Looking for a good balance charger that I can charge my bricks @ 10amps for racing. Have been using my ICE and another non balance charger for years, time for an upgrade. I only need to balance/charge one pack at a time. My race pack 6950mah 100c can charge up to 2c rate. What do you recommend?

4s 6950mah lipo's that can be charged at 2c

so that means u can charge them at 14amps in about 40min

4.2x4=16.8v fully charged...

16.8v x 14amps = 235.2watts

IMO u want a charger over 240watts

something like this

The reason I said 10amps charge rate is because that is the cap our track put on lipo charging. 10amps max charge rate allowed. This looks like a real nice charger Phmaximus, does anyone in the states sell these? Price is good for sure. The only issue would be service if n she don't work out of the box.....
