Any comments on this charger? I'm in the market for a charger and came across this one. I know they have an expert version but this one is in my price range.

It is a great little charger, used to work for a company that was a Robitronic importer and they gave me one to try out, have had it for several years. You can either use in in delta peak (regular to charger to those of us in N. America) or use the temp. charge like the Europeans like. Either way works great.

It's a great charger, several people around here use it and are happy. The delta- and temp method can be combined so the one which occurs first, stop the charger. Trickle charge can be disabled. If you charge with the temp method, you can set a maximum capacity to charge - extra secure, especially if one forget to mount the temp probe.

I plan on getting the Expert version, at some point. But money...

Guys;

I have had ZERO luck in finding/getting the Robitronic Charger(s) in the USA.

Oh I found this charger at http://shopping.rcmodel.com.hk/ I was looking for yokomo sd parts and saw they carry robotronic. Price is good and i want something a little different than the novaks and lrps i see all over the place.

AWOL: thanks for pointing out a RC shop I haven't seen before .

I know you're looking at the Robotronic, but as to chargers I would recommend the Yokomo BCSS. It isn't super user-friendly, but is relatively cheap (around $150), and I like it better than my LRP Pulsar (for less money too!). It seems to false peak less or never, has a temp-based charge option, and, if you want something uncommon, isn't as popular as the Novaks, LRPs, CEs (Turbo 35), etc. etc. Don't get me wrong though, all of those chargers are good too.
