I don't agree. Only charging at 1C can make the batt go "soft" / less punchy in my experience. I always charge at 10A, and haven't experienced reduced lifespan or performance. But what I have noticed, is that it is done charging sooner, meaning I can get more practice runs in an evening.

I have the Touch charger in stock now (5-19-12), and the price is $149.99 plus tax, and it will charge at 6 amps, and discharge at 2amps. I've tried the charger, and it really works great, and looks great doing it! I don't think there are many others that compare to ease of use or looks! Give it a try....

I bought this charger other day and it works great except I saw latest update on Orion site and tried to load to charger but no luck. Other guy who have same charger got same problem. Update is on my laptop but can't seems to connect to charger by USB port.
Anyone have success updating? Is there much difference between v1.3 to new v1.4?
I use it for 3.7v single cell 12th scale batteries.

Don't know but the charger is dead accurate. I didn't need to re check batteries at Roar Nats.
