Well, I've had my Quasar for only a very short time and thankfully, there have been no problems.

The biggest problem I have seen other local racers have with the Quasar Pro/Indi 16X7 is static problems. For example if you pit in an area which has carpet, you walk back to your pits and touch the charger, and whammo it goes out.

Many guys around here have learned to ground themselves before touching these chargers. An alternative to that is to hit Radio Shack and pick up a grounding strip wrist band. Put it on, clip it to one of the side vents on the charger's case, and you should be safe.

Yep - that is the same problem I had. Also with my LRP Pulsar. I fixed that by grounding my power supply better.

TY: if those are the two prices you have to choose from, get the 16X7! I can't say for sure if they are 'exactly' the same, but they are close enough that a $30 difference in price is something that can't be ignored!

Default Static discharge damage

DarkSeid;

That is a really GREAT tip. I've never had that problem, but the wind kicks up here regularly and in the dry months static elect. is strong.
I know both my Quasar and Integy 16-2 have 3 prong plugs, but I don't remember if the ground wires are attached to the cases. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to check.

Thanks,

PS, I'll thinking about you and your RFX this weekend

Thanks for the suggestion so far. It looks like the Integy charger (at least the 16x7) has a 5 year warranty according to their site. What is the warranty on the Reedy Quasar Pro?
