Default Millennium Pro vs. CE Pit Bull

I need some opinions here. Can anyone give me their
comments on which may be the better charger Novak Millennium Pro vs. Comp. Electronics Pit Bull . Except for the obvious Pit Wizard difference. Thanks for your time!

I can't answer much about those two chargers. Consider the LRP Pulsar as well. I like mine a lot.

last time i checked the pitbull can't charge 3300's...altho that is the official definition.many ppl i know who use it to charge 3300's
the millenium has no such 'official' restriction.
And yes consider the pulsar.(but beware:go to the LRP forum and u'll see more than 1 kind of problems the pulsar has).

The PitBull charges 3300 cells fine. I have never heard of any restriction on cell capacity for the PitBull.

If you wish to read reviews on both chargers, We have a review on each charger. On the main page, Click Product Reviews

You can't really go wrong with chargers from CE....how many matchers do you know using Novak chargers!?!

Except for the silly sounds that the Pitbull has (which can be silenced!) it is a very consistent charger....I know of people who have gone from Novak to Pitbull.....but no one doing the reverse!

Default Other chargers

My only complaints agains't those chargers are that they are DC only and need a some kind of DC power source (extra $$) if you don't already have one.
For myself, I prefer an AC/DC charger that way I have the best of both worlds. Both of the chargers I own will charge up to 6.5 amps with either power source (some are limited with AC).
All in all, there are ALOT of very good chargers out there and my only real recommendations would be to get a Digital display and at least 5+ amps capacity.

The pitbull will charge 3300's FINE! I don't know the minumum, but 3300's charge fine on the PitBull.

Novak with a power supply? The Novak Ionic comes with a power supply when you buy the AC/DC version, the Millenium does NOT come with a power supply..

Popsracer- That is very true about the power supply.....but once you buy one your options on chargers become a lot larger!

I don't charge any of my packs at 4 amps. 2000, 2400, 3000HV, 3300, charge them all at 5 amps or more.
