When I left flying some years ago I was using A triton charger and also had a DN power charger and lipos. Both worked great for my use. That was 7-8 years ago.

Whats a good modern balancing charger nowadays?

Best to determine what your power-charging-times requirements are going to be and buy accordingly.

A charger is a charger is a charger...

What has changed?

Color Screen displays
Touch screens
Higher charging capability
Internal Resistance measurements
Dual or Quad outputs
Internal Power Supply

Given your needs, ANY charger will do. You just need to seek the features that you would like to have.

That link I provided has chargers.

You can find good deals in the clasifieds here as well.

iCharger and Revolectrix are my quality charger recommendations. I prefer the Revolectrix line of chargers for my needs. Dave at Progressive RC and Dale at Buddy RC are great guys and super helpful, give them a call and talk your needs with them.

Thank you! Something along the lines of the Icharger is what im looking for. Nice package and fairly priced. Ill follow up with them to talk it over. I was also looking at the dynamite passport ultra before your post.
