Hey,
I want to buy one of those chargers. I don't care about the balancer option because I already have a balancer.
What is the pros and cons of each charger? I need to charge nicads,nimh and 3cells lipos.. maybe some li-ion 2 cells as well.
I liked the 301dx because it can discharge, and will do auto-cycling. The bc5 can't, but it has a built-in balancer. which I don't need. So, why there's a different in the price? because of the balancer? ..

Please base your answer referring to money/performance ratio.

I need a quick answer as I'm going to buy it today.

Thanks,
Gil.

yes..

Look like the 301dx will suit your needs better. Take in account that the BC5 will stop charging if any of the cells have a trouble, this is a nice safety feature.

When charging a lipo without balancing, the 301DX and the BC-5 are identical. The BC-5 when balancing the cells has the ability to terminate the charge if any cell exceeds 4.23V.

The 301DX can also cycle batteries, the BC-5 cannot.

so the 301dx is better for my needs because I'm using nicads and I already have a balancer...

Thanks for the help.
