Too many features to list. Go see this site

This site has the accurate details on the features of the charger. The main advantage being the ability to monitor individual cells while charging or discharging as a pack, thereby preventing overcharging or overdischarging ANY of the cells within the pack. Side by side or saddle packs only though!

You should be able to order them direct using the email.

Pro-Trak is a very nice charger. I have one forsale in the forsale forum. Let me know if you have any questions about the charger I have lots of time with it.

Later,

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

I have had a Pro trak charger for the last 3 years and I swear by it.

It is in constant use and has never missed a beat.

It does everything but wash the dishes.

Definately a good buy. I use that and a couple of Novak Millenium Pros at race meetings, the Milleniums for charging and the Pro trak for peaking, but at the shop the Pro trak is always on the go.

Money well spent.

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

I am fortunate enough to race at the same club as the owner of Pro-Trak.
Very nice guy and extremely helpful. I don't use one yet, as I am still using my trusty Orion charger. Once that one dies, or I get an influx in cash, I would definatley go for the Pro-Trak.
There has been plenty of times I have asked fellow racers to track a dodgy cell or to help me out checking the quality of my cells.

As John Bull says, it'll do everything but do the dishes. In addition you will always find helpfull service from the owner and constant software upgrades which will never render the charger obsolete.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Yorkie. Phil was racing here in Malta last October with some other friends from your area.

Please give Bill, George, Steve and Phil my regards.

It's sunny and warm here today so my Pro trak is working overtime right at the moment charging my cells for an afternoon at the track.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

John Bull,

I will pass on your regards at tomorrow nights meeting.

I did not realise that Bill and George were at your track, I never gave it a thought. They tell me they had a terrible time racing due to smashing up their PRO3 upper decks but enjoyed themselves all the same.

I see George and Bill from time to time at their club a few miles down the road in Durham. Next time I am there I will say hello.

Have you heard anything about a new Yok coming out shortly, the one with silver graphite chassis.
I was going to order an SP V.2 from HK but the importers are not going to bring any in due to this new kit coming out. The shop owner could not tell me when the new kit is due out.

Yorkie. Greetings from Malta.

Just back from a pleasant afternoon at the track.

The Yoke situation seems to be a complete mystery. They have introduced a new version of the special. They also have the silver graphite model which if I understand things correctly is a limited production model for the Japanese market only.

I know that Masami experimented with various all new models in South Africa after the Worlds, but we still haven't heard anything else.

Certainly lots of Yoke guys have moved elsewhere, and who can blame them. I like my MR4s but in reality there are plenty of other good cars around.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

I have a Pro Trak and love the thing. I recently purchased it 7 months ago and have had a great time using it. It has too many features to list but I will tell you that with an optional cable, you can send cycling information to your computer and print out your results. You can monitor each cell which is a good thing, you can run in motors, you can temperature charge your batteries (with an optional temperature module. The list goes on and on. I have talked to Phil from Pro trak many times and he has answered every question that I have sent him. My hat's off to Pro trak and Phil of course. Hope this helps.

I think i paid 289.00 for the charger and ten i added the temp module, and the pc cable extra plus shipping. I think it is well worth it. Hope this helps.
