It will work like no other. I ran my Pulsar and My Pitbull at the same time with the Novak Power Supply. I can even ramp both at 7 amps at the same time when I want to push my Batts.

I know people that use both chargers. I have heard and seen more problems with the Reedy then with the 16x7 Pro.

The Reedy has a 90 day warranty and the 16x7 Pro has a 5 year warranty. The Reedy does not have a backlit display and you cannot turn off trickle charge. The 16x7 Pro has a backlight and you can turn off the trickle charge.

I have seen a couple have their Reedy just quit working and have never seen a 16x7 Pro quit working. I myself use the 16x5 Version 6 and have had no problems. I would most definetly take the 16x7 Pro over the Reedy if for nothing else the 5 year warranty. Plus the fact you can trade up for the newer version through Integy.

Later

Be aware to that LRP is soon to come out with a sport version of the Pulsar.
It has all the goodies of charging like the Pro but without the extras which some people find useless (disharging, powering lathe, measuring batts, etc..) you can save some money if you go that route.

Well, I have the Integy 16x7 Pro . It is an ok charger but when I first got it I thought it wuz amazin because I wuz a newbie. I had the charger for a couple of months now and had one problem with it. I wuz chargin my battery and then I realized that one fan wasn't workin. I got a free fan from Integy and when I put it on, the fan did not go on every 15 secs., it went on forever. So I unplugged it and left like that since today. Well my advice to you is to get a better charger than the Integy 16x7 Pro b/c most likely in the future you will be getting a newer and better charger. I would recommend getting like the M. Pro or the Pulsar with a PS, that would be a better idea...

How much does a Pulsar cost? Over $150?

I currently have a Quasar Pro and fortunately, it hasn't died on me yet after 8 months of usage. But, the thought of it just failing(especially on an important race) just keeps on bugging me... might sell it and get a Pulsar instead...

You can actualy cut off the trickle charge on the reedy. Just set it to 0 and it doesnt trickle.

Ya the Pulsar Sport is cool but the Pulsar Competition is cooler. Plus it has the extra features that I want and need. Only thing is that it only discharges at 10 amps, but I'll probably be using a set of lights or a tray. Have you guys seen that new LRP power supply that is suppose to be coming out? Only 2 oz!!! It's on their website www.lrp-electronic.de

Ahhh, I forgot the hole point; Those chargers that had problems, were the ones with abuilt in AC supply. I believe it's because the built-in ones usually are cheaper ones.
