Default Nosram Sirius

I'll probably get the Nosram Sirius charger soon. It seems to be the same as the LRP Pulsar Sport, however, it's not clear stated on the Nosram site, if the trickle charge can be disabled.

Do somebody know?

Thanks.

I've just ordered the Sirius - shold be at my pit before christmas.

Basically, it's the same as the Pulsar Sport, but I find the design refreshing.

If anybody's interested, it's here: www.nosram.com

Is there stuff made by LRP? Their ESC's, Receivers and chargers "look" the same. just different color packaging.

I'm not sure.

Originally, Nosram was an independent UK company, but was taken over by LRP in 2000.

I cant really figure out what the point is - the product seems to be the same (specs, looks), except from color (is red better than blue? ) and in some cases, the cabinet. The product line, warranty and prices also seems to be the same.

Some kind of virtual/artificial competition, making LRP not looking too monopol-like on some markets? This is just speculation, I simply dont know. Both brands are reprensented in my country, as many others

I think it's just like Orion/Peak or Trinity/Epic, pure marketing strategy...

Here in Italy there are GRP and ElleGi tyre brands, but tyres came out from the same factory.....

Bye!
