What's the difference between a front line and a breaker?

Frontline Version is a 4ED charger with 3 stage charging

Recorder Breaker is a 3 stage charger (manual)

Record Breaker is a total manual adjustable charger, people overall comments is the pack is charge a little bit more than with other charger...

Front Line Ver. 2 has three different charge mode for 3 stage charge and 4ED. It has Impact, Static, and Linear charge mode... and it has little more enhanced version of the 3 stage charging

Packs may generaly indicate a higher charge in capacity with the use of an RB
but that did not mean they had a greater discharge capacity. In most cases batteries showed a
slightly lower gain in negative internal resistane which translated in more rip or punch for the pack.
This test was done charging with a Futaba vs RB and then discharge on the Futaba.

As far as I know, if charging capacity will be increasing, discharge
capacity will be also increasing a little bit. (Capacity increase for
discharge is not much greater than the one for charge.)
Therefore, we cannot expect "greater" discharge capacity, but
discharge capacity will be increasing!
This means, we can expect more run time.

Talking about "battery punch", we can give more punch by changing charge profile of RB or FLver2.

Mark, I also recommend you to test it by Fortress.

RB & FL Charger will be upgradable! We can always use latest information and latest ver. if user wants. I think this is one of great feedback to RB & FL users. In other words, I have never heard that other charger manufacturer provide upgrade service.

I have the same results using the CE to discharge packs as well. The charger has good results.

I like the dataset that can be generated by the Fortress but wish there was a way to add lifetime charge data to that program as well that can be manually inputted over time.

Esmie, do you work for Straight?
