Why kill everything in the lineup? I can't buy a Novak Charger right now, they are ALL discontinued. Not to judge...ok maybe a little....but it was the STUPIDEST thing I've seen to halt sales and production of all your chargers BEFORE the replacement was even completely designed.

Default New charger

Yah thats kind of strange to discontinue a product w/o a replacement. It seems like the hot item in chargers is the multi-step with adjustable cutoff for each step . Motor run with a discharge feature would be nice. Maybe it could have a tray to charge each individual cell and also you could discharge and equalize them. I have a very old mill pro i bought in 2001 and it works great. I am looking at the Team-much more charger to replace it but would rather buy a new Novak so hurry up and get it out there.

I love my Millenium Pro, that I brought second hand, and wait in interest for the new one to come out and see what's it's like.

I won't be surprise if they release one which is lipo compatible, Novak predicted that brushless was going to be huge and now maybe lithium batteries would follow as well.

by the time Novak predicted Brushless would be huge it already WAS huge everywhere except north american RC cars lol....

I don'tknowif you'll see novak rushing back into LiPo....they still have their mandatory recall notice posted on their front page from their micro batteries...

Novak has some incredible products, but their charger offerings were long overdue for an update, especially now that Novak has entered the battery game too..

i'm very interested to see what they come up with

I'm sure the new charger will be nice. Novak very seldom lays out short.

Charlie if you see this, I had a thought (rare for me)- it would be nice to be able to charge/discharge at high amps like normal with one set of leads, while being able to charge reciever packs, and other low amp stuff like motor break-in with a second set of leads. If I could cut a comm and charge my battery at the same time I wouldn't need 2 chargers in my pit!!!

Hey Guys, We are working on a replacment that will do "Everything" and come in a nice orange case. Fancy display and all kinds of cool bells and whistles, You can ask all you want when it will be out and what it will do, but I won't tell you, no matter how much you ask, because we all know about what happens if I say one thing and the product isn't that way. So we'll announce full features as we get closer, but that is a few months out.

The Ionic D- is the Ionic replacment, not the Millennium Pro's replacment.

There are no updates available for the Millennium Pro right now. Latest software is last 3 digits 036 and 039 they are both the same.

We were at a point to redesigne or make more, we decided to redesign.

Thanks for the support Guys, It is much appreciated!!!

Thanks
Charlie

This sounds like "Vapourware". Buy some charger that is already available. The new Novak most likely will not be available 'till next summer if then.
Even if it will be "replacment that will do "Everything"" I don't like the "what it will do, but I won't tell you, no matter how much you ask"
