Default Record Breaker Charger / FrontLine2 Charger

Anyone know where I can purchase one of these chargers. I know that SpeedTech has them, but they are currently out.

You can get them overseas from either Rcmodel in Hk or Rc Champ in Akihabara in Japan. However I would wait til Steve get's more in. He has much better prices (still amazes me how they could be cheaper than in Japan). I hope you can read Japanese though. Instructions are all in Kanji.

The company "Straight Co." is currently making English
manuals, too. I will inform you once it is available.

Hebiki - Thanks. If you could email me the instructions that would be great. By the way, how do you like yours. Have you seen an improvement in your battery performance?

Chris: Can you email me a copy? Steve said that they are currently working on the english instructions for the F2 charger, but I'm sure most of it is the same as the RB. Thanks. [email protected].

keith

so far ive only used it on my practice packs. ive found four things.

1. packs that only charged up to 2900mah on my old chargers now charge up to 4000mah with the Record Breaker
2. voltage is the same at the end of the charge.
3. performance is the same. 6amp on a linear charger is the same as the 3 stage on the Record Breaker.
4. batteries are cooler coming off the charger.

I'm sure with more time, i can get better performance while still getting the same or more runtime from my batteries. im currently only working with one specific profile. ill get daring later on.

overall, get the charger its a great investment. no frills. all it does is charge and it does an awesome job doing it.

What's up Jason. I was over at his shop just the other day and he didn't have anymore. I'm not sure when he will have more. I tried to call him, but no answer. There not listed on his website so you can't reserve them either. I guess I'll just have to keep calling him.
