Default Which charger?

This may have been asked on here recently but I can' remember. I'm looking at getting a new small charger & am looking for suggestions. I have a T35 Stealth but am need of another small charger too. 4-6 cell packs. Pit Bull or Novak Millinium Pro? Thanks.

Rick - We have 2 Millenium Pros in our trailer and they're awesome! They're very user friendly and easy to set up.

in terms of size..and weight.. you cant go wrong with the yokomo BCSS charger. has temp charging too. has other good features too. very light and small. it weighs as much as my rayspeed discharger.

Rick - Did you have a chance to see the new PitBull x3 at the Novak race?

I forgot to check back to get the info on any changes, so I don't know what's new on it...

Troy, I saw it but didn't take a good look at it. He did tell me that it some user setable programs but at the time I wasn't looking to buy. Did they say it will be out in 3 weeks? Thanks. R.W.

One thing nice about the Pit bull is it's small and has a 10 minute lock out option.

This is a second charger to go along with his T35, which will charge/Discharge/Cycle better than the other chargers you've already listed...

The Integy charger is nice, as are some of the other options...but why would he need a charger with a max 20A discharge when he already has one that'll do 35A?

I've heard good things about the pitbull and the LRP Pulsar Sport. Some people have been reporting false peak issues with their Millenium's but I don't have any confirmed accounts of this. PErsonally, I'm using a T35 Stealth for my main charger, and using an original millenium for receiver, micro, and transmitter packs and it works like a dream!

You know and (I presume) trust the charging algorithms and the quality of Competition Electronics..and for the price of the pitbull I'd say that would probably be your safest bet.

My T35bls trustly side kick is the Reedy Quasar pro. The great thing about this charger is its small and doesnt need a power supply. I personally think as great as the pitbull and novak are that one should really be looking at the LRP pulsar and the Reedy since they both pack more features then the later two for nearly the same price
