Just that it's not the only one that gets upgrades...and beig lumped together with CE is not a bad thing by any stretch of theimagination in most people's eyes

(Pro-Trak also offers upgrades I beleive)

Yup! I know there are many good chargers in the world.
Like you said, CE, Protrak, robitronic, futaba, YMP charger and so on. these are very good chargers.

Yes, Pro-Trak can be upgradable. I heard that it has also three
stages. I cannot buy it so expensive

Steve, just wanted to say that I love my record breaker!! I've had it over a year and can't imagine doing without it. I would suggest to your customers to take a temp gun and check each pack while peaking to find the warmest cell, then make a small mark on that cell to identify it and always put the magnetic temp sensor on that particular cell of the pack. This will almost always be the warmest cell and will help to prevent hurting that cell. This is particularly important in older packs that are no longer matched.

Question- do you have just the temp sensor leads? Mine has a break in it somewhere (no fault of the manufacturer cause I just cram my wires in my storage box) and I would prefer replacing it rather than fixing it and take a chance of over heating my batteries.

Thanks,
Jason

really depends on what you wanna do and the condition of your batteries. i set up my RB at 3.5 - 6 - 4.5 with delta at 36MV and temp cut off at 45deg.

TCR: if you purchase the charger from steve, it will include instructions in english and the magnetic temp sensor

he currently has them in stock. check out the link steve posted above.

Hi Jason,

Glad to hear you like the record breaker charger. I believe I do have more of the magnetic temperature sensor. I'll have to double check tomorrow.
