Thanks, I'm about to replace my 16x5, and it will be good to know if the 16x9 is a contender.

Trips, it will still trickle charge. It's a 16x5 with a built-in PSU!

Thanks Alvin. I justy went ahead and ordered up a Novak Millenium Pro from Stormer. It'll be here Friday.

Have a deal pending for the 16x5, got an email offer, sent a reply, waiting to hear back.

Later,

T

TRS, i'm curious, do you use multiple chargers, i.e. different location = different charger? e.g. at track use a 16x5, at home with the millenium?

Hey Trips- Maybe you might want to hang on to that 16x5 for a little while just to compare the two. I have a friend that reports to me his Novak tends to overcharge his SMH's and we all know how heat builds up fast in the SMH's. I think overcharging does a lot more to flatten the pack then trickling would. If I could get a charger that would just cut off at a set voltage, say 9v for nmh, I would be happy. Try the two chargers head to head before deciding.

Love my 16x5. Got it for $209 at Stormer. My batts have great punch and runtime. Noone uses it at my track.....yet. The beeping tends to draw attention as all of the millenium and intelipeak users lean over. Playing with 2000s unmatched and 3000 matched from promatchracing.
Only complaint it that the instructions are a little bland.
