I use an icharger 3010B - This should work well. "best" is subjective... For my uses it's one of the best out there.

Since the never stated the circumstances in which the "fire" happened, I would be weary of that testimony. Great charger and any charger used outside it's intended use can be dangerous!!!

I have been using the 3010b charging at 16.8 amps almost daily, sometimes 2 5s at 20amps a buddy has one also works well.

I'm quite happy with my FMA PowerLab 8. I liked the first one so much I got a second one.

Looking at the specifications I would say the best charger will be the thunder power TP 820CD. It comes out in August or September. It is a Dual port 800W charger (400W per side) with a built in balancer. I have 2 pre-ordered with thunder power

The I-Charger is 1000 watts with a built in balancer and will charge a 6s 5000 pack @ 5c in 9:44. How much faster do you need???

I hear what your saying, however, I like the fact that using just 1 charger I will be able to charge 2 6s 5000 packs at the same time at 3.6C on the TP 820-CD. On 5S and lower the C rates are even higher.

No I have not
What do you use for a power supply with it, as I will be in need of a high power one.

I use a Meanwell SE-1000-24 25 volt power supply. Allows ridiculous charge rates and it has a very stable output section.

with the 3010b I can charge 6 6s batteries 3600 mah less than 30 minutes. I don't charge the batteries at night anymore. I just charge before going to the field so no wasted charges because you decide not to go flying that morning.

Excellent, the technology is coming around nicely.

Something to take into consideration. I talked with Thunder Power and the TP 820CD will plug directly into the wall, no need for seperate power supply Of course you can still use a seperate power supply if you want to with it.

They said it can also be used with a 12V external power supply. It is not rated to be used with a 24V external power supply.

Yeah but with 120V available when you plug it into the wall, it should get all the power it will need.
