T35GFX

Hondaguy 05-02-2004 05:11 PM

It's still the T35GFX

The Competition Electronics big POS is still the "best"

I use the Integy 11x6v7 cause it charges at 6.5 AMPS and small enough to haul 60 miles to the carpet track

gfx is an excellent bench top work horse but it does lack in its charger abuiltys novak pro is what i use to charge my packs never the gfx i just use it for repeaks and features it doesn't over heat the packs like the gfx

I would have to say the MRC super brain 909 is the best charger created....Im just kidding, i have only used the millenium and the millenium pro, but i want to get the GFX.

The Pro Trak is not well known in this country (US), which of any of the other chargers mentioned here can give you individual cell data within a pack on charge and discharge for almost anything you would want to know. This data can be exported into excell to produce graphs, again for whole pack or individual cell information. e-mail me and I can send you a file which demostrates this. I have been using one for 8 years, nothing comes close.

the gfx is on the top a very close 2nd is the new futaba cdr-5000 and 3rd is the pro-trak. the futaba has same features a s a pro-trak but has more details of your batts condition individually and as a pack.

GFX - still the standard becuase, CE is the maker of the popular turbo matcher.

protrack - raised the bar for chargers it terms of battery maintenance... it has bunch of info on the condition of your packs, etc, however, it falls short in the "looks" category, not that it affects the performance of the unit.

FUTABA - haven't tried 1, but it sounds good, like a "hopped" up protrack.

The futaba isn't even that hopped up, this is the only other one which is trying to do individual cell data, I'm told they are having issues allowing for voltage drop in the wires which throws off the data considerably.
