Default New Robitronic charger

This new charger seems very interesting, some features I havent seen before...

EXPERT Charger now available!
Based on the race-proven Pro-2000plus charger Robitronic developed the "Expert Charger" featuring "EXP-3P"- a totally new software program for optimum charging. This exclusive "Expert 3-Phase Charging Program" developed by Robitronic engineers adjusts charge rates automatically according to battery conditions:

In Phase 1 the battery is charged with a very high current (8-9 Amps) which will lead to an increased voltage during discharge.
In Phase 2 the charge rate is like any Pro charger using a current setting of 5-6 Amps.
In Phase 3 the charge current is reduced to 3-4 Amps which will result in a siginficantly higher capacity.
These 3 different phases of charging using optimized charge rates instead of a fixed charge rate over the complete charging cycle are leading to increased voltage during discharge and higher overall capacity.

...

Advantages of EXP-3P

Increased capacity
Increased voltage
Minimized heat build-up
Increased cycle lifetime of your battery packs

Robitronic Expert

Guys trhere are some Dutch and German on-line stores which do ship them.
Look on the internet for
-RC speedworld
-VGmodelbouw
-Viol
Most of them you can mail for info. I know they all carry it.

The brand originates from Austria so that's why it is pretty popular on the main-land in Europe.
I recently barrowed their current Pro2000+ model from a friend.
It's a solid charger.
And small in size...
Also R Schachhuber, the owner of Robitronic, is a real decent guy.
He stands for the quality of his products.

Guys;

Just got the same E-mail from Robitronic too. Interesting specs, but I wonder about finding them in the USA.

I was just thinking that this Charger would be REALLY great for spec classes that limit battery capacity.

Your right they look physically the same. Both charge at up to 10 amps, but Orion doesn't claim the 3 phase charging system like Robi does.
Would be neat to have one (in the USA) just because it says 'Robitronic' on the case. AND for the features.

Yep, true. At our club, both the Pro2000+ and the Orion version are represented. They are the same, only different colours...
