Top of the line : -
1. Turbo 35GFX (w/motor run in)
2. Pro-trak (w/motor run in)
3. CDR500 (wo/motor run in)

Pocket friendly charger : -
1. Integy 16x5 / Eagle CDC v6.0B
2. LRP Pulsar 1 , 2
3. Orion D48
4. Novak Millenium
5. Pit Bull X3

This are just some of the chargers that people used.
It all boils down to how much are you willing to fork out for it.
You can never go wrong with either one of those chargers that i have mention.

Sometimes I find myself thinking that the Pro-trak is an upgraded Victor,



(just sourgraping - I can't afford that charger)

A new one is around $400 i believe. If you are lucky you can get one used for less then upgrade it to the current software.

Crimson Eagle on this board is the US dealer and you should probably talk to him about pricing. He is very prompt with all inquiries and provides excellent support.

I agree with rough512 the pro-trak does seem to be an improved victor. It is too bad victor went under or we might have 2 great chargers to choose from

I'd definitely get something with a motor run feature... It's indespensable when running a lathe, truer or breaking in brushes....

I'm using a T35GFX add an Reddy Quasar Pro (which still needs to go back on recall)....

I've been contemplating a pro trak for a while.... 2 chargers aren't enough when you have 2 of you trying to charge batteries (my son and I....)

Default VICTOR RULES!!

all I can say:KEEP YOUR VICTOR.just cancel the mah limit while charging and use the voltage push option with 0.04v peak drop.
I have an upgraded super iq to iq 3000,but if you dont have the zapper,it really is unnessesary.
I have the multiplexor and will build a tray that I can discharging AND charging each cell individually,that should greatly increase the lifetime and the performance of the batteries.
the only chargers I would buy are the pro-trak or the cdr 5000,Im sorry to say that,but the cdr 5000 has some very nice features that the pro-trak cant offer and in direct comparisson it looks outdated.
cheers

Are you saying you can build a tray that can hook up to the Victor and charge each cell in a pack individually or do you have to have the multiplexor unit to do this?

Yep, it's good. Several guys at our track is using it. Only thing is, that if yoiu go to big race events where AC power vary, ensure you have a good powersupply. The Space Charger aint excatly bad about this issue, many others have similar problems with false peaks in this situation. A charger like the Eagle CDC v6 is more resistant to variyng AC power.

Quite many people around here uses this charger, for it's proce it's an awsome charger. AND, it's a simple game installed in it, If it's very boring. Just play it

Myself own both pulsar 1 and 2, works great!
As a backup i have a GM Commander but it's just big and hard to understand menus..

The only way I would think you could fool it would be to do a double charge. Meaning do a timed 10 min charge, then a regular peak with voltage drop after that. I am not sure if you can program something in like that. I will have to review my manual, and get back to you.
