The Eagle is a great charger, $250 is a bargain when you compare the features with chargers costing twice as much! It's easy to use and reliable, you won't regret getting one.

yup, i agree my friend talked me into getting one and it's one of the best rc investments i got - it can charge/discharge/cycle virtually any rechargeable battery i use - single cell igniter, 4-cell receiver pack, 8-cell transmitter pack, 4-cell 1/12 packs, 6-cell 1/10 packs, etc etc. i do miss the motor run feature of my old T35 but i recently got a cheap 4-cell 1700 nicad pack for that purpose.

Alright, everyone wondering about the Pro-Trak. I have one, and have had it about 2 months now. first off when I got it, I paid $340 USD shipped, seeing that shipping is about 40 USD, I got it in about 1.5 weeks, but sometimes he has a waiting list since they build them by hand. I must say, for sub-c cells, this is the best charger available, you have to do a certain thing to it for it to charge down to 1 amp though, If you would like to charge like reciever packs, or Tx packs. Also, one thing I suggest spending the extra bucks on is his Temp. Module. The software is very nice, for testing your batts. and reading ALL the info(graphs and everything else you could imagine). To test if you have a faulty cell is very easy, also, very accurate. I am very happy with this charger, but sometimes Phil does take sometime to reply to emails, but dont hold that against the charger. Also when I had a problem with it, Phil called me, and we went over it over the phone and fixed the problem, if someone would like to know about the problem, then ask. Also, another nice thing, is that he will update his software, every ONCE-IN-A-WHILE, not very often or anything, and you can call him up or email him, and get the update and instructions, on how to install it on your charger. It handles GP3300's VERYwell, what I use the most, (.03 to.04 on the delta peak on the Protrak) and that gets them right up to optimum temperature,(130 to 135) in my city. I have had many chargers and I like this one the best, the Itegy 16x5v6 Is very nice for the money, I was also thinking about the CE GFX charger, but once I saw the screen on it, I said forget it!!

Iīm also using a protrak since about one and a half year and it never disappointed me. Lotīs of features maybe more than you need but very easy to work with after some days.
I had a problem in the beginning caused by a firmware bug and Phil reacted very fast with an improved ROM. You never will get "the perfect charger" as there is no perfect thing in this world but the protrac is very close. Maybe it could be a little smaller and a Novak or a LRP looks a little more professional made but I doubt they work any better.
The Robitronic are also very good ( I used one before the protrac) but I think they do have some weak points the protrac doesnīt have.
One of them is they do get very hot which sometimes is a problem and they donīt like low input voltage (12V). In fact the protrac is working with input voltage as low as 30 mV higher than the battery youīre charging. I donīt know of any charger working on voltage that low. Thatīs maybe important if there is no mains at the track and you have to use your car battery to power up the charger.

The protrak seems like a great charger. If one puts an order in for one, how long would it take to get to the states? Does Phil have an email address where I could contact him?

Default Protrak Charger

Most people in my country abondoned the Protrak. The reason is very simple, the Protrak doesn't like a fluctuating input voltage. I will display an error message if the supply voltage is fluctuating.

The problem now is that the supply of AC power from the Electric Company in my country is not very reliable. Sometimes it can be as low as 190V (220V Nominal). I know that on some "cheap" swithcing power supply, the ouput voltage can drop down from 12.5V, to arould 9V...

Other charger still able to operate normaly.
