Phase/Stepped charging hasnt yet proven to be any better/worse that normal linear charging!! Ok you can soft charge then put big amps through but that doesnt save them any more than just putting big amps all the way!!
At the end of the day if you put more than 6ish amps through your cells then they wont last much more than 30 runs anyway before they start to die off.
I think you should read Adrian's reply again. He's comparing it with the Pulsar Comp 1. The Pulsar Comp 2 only offers adjustable discharge current and 3 stored profiles over the Pulsar Comp 1.
To me, thats hardly anything to jump for since I have the Pulsar Comp 1 myself.
While Phase charging offers something truely different from the Pulsar 1 and thats a good reason to upgrade/try the new charger if it had that feature.
Besides, Phase charging offers benefits that you will never know of because you haven't tried it before. I have personally seen the performance of a pack charged with phase charge technology (Record Breaker) and the pack peaks at 4200 mah and is only 40 degrees celcius in the same time we take to charge with our normal charger.
The numbers gotten from a Turbo 35 discharge were significantly better than the same cell charged with other chargers. Not to mention that they finished their charge hotter.
