If it really DO provide step/phase charging, then its already a huge advantage towards the original Pulsar charger.

I just bought my Pulsar Comp. about a week ago...to replace my Quasar Pro.

I love it so far. The only thing I would ask for is at least a 20amp adjustable discharge rate. But thats about it...

I was very close to get the Pulsar, but since I also needed a discharger, I choosed tthe CDC v6 instead.

If I just could combine the Pulsar and the CDC - I really like the features of the CDC, but it would be nice with adjustable amp rate on the fly, power failure resume and motor run in. But since I'm on a budget, I cant get it all Anyway, I'm satisfied with the CDC, for my needs, it's the charger with most value for the money.

Anyone read about the new Orion Advantage charger??

http://www.teamorion.com/news.asp?id=307

Its suspiciously similar in spec to a Pulsar Competition and its additional features would just be ideal for the Pulsar 2. Not to mention 3 charging profiles storage which would tie in with the suspicious "P3" seen on the screen (notice the "3" is underlined in typical Pulsar fashion for something u can adjust).

I wouldn't be surprised if this were another base design being sold in different packages with different brands, just like the integy/eagle chargers being so similar with the Reedy quaser and other chargers etc...

I think discharge is still 10amp but adjustable 0.1-10amp. But motor amp draw is now set to 14amps. You can change peak from 5mv-95mv now. And you can charge up to 10amps now. And I'm not quite sure, but I think you can have 3 profiles now. There's a few other things. But I don't remember off the top of my head.

I have a robitronics expert charger noticed that the 3phase works perfectly exept for other features like discharge and motor run-in that doesnt come along with it. If pulsar 2 has 3 phase charging, does it also have temperature probe for peak temp?
Wow if so, thats a break through!

Good timing! (for me anyway) I was planning on getting the pulsar competition, but I'll just wait until version 2 is out. Does anyone know the status of the pulsar 2? When will it be available? Retail price?
