Default Much More Cell Master/Orion Advantage.

Im guessing these chargers are identical except for maybe a few tiny things orion have changed. Was just wondering if anyone could tell me what they had done to it.
The much more 20A supply is 110/220v switchable so i presume its similar to a computer psu and you can just flick a tab over and use it fine in whatever country.

And something that wasnt worth its own topic. My xenon tape seems to seperate the top bit from the fibers, this happen to anyone else?

the tape i got from staples used to do that a lot when it got warm, so we tried to keep it cool as much as we could.

do you have the orion advantage or the much more cell thingy?

we are deciding on a new charger- much more, team orion, duratrax ice or that APS thingy on speedtech's site.

Hello,

I have both chargers and they are both really good.

The Orion one does not make much noise at all, the Cell Master have allot of fan noise, very annoying..... Also, the Orion one has the motor run in feature which is really good, the CTX does not have that!
The temp sensor on the Orion Advantage is also very trick, attaches to the cells with a magnet and stays in place!!

With almost the same price I would definitely go for the Orion Advantage Charger, no doubt!!

Thanks, thats interesting, I'm also considering these chargers. But since I'm mainly racing in relative cold ambient, the Cell Master battery warmer plays a role for me.

Is the Orion charger manual online somewhere? I couldnt find it Orions site.

The new Orion motor Checker is the same as the Much More Motor Master.

The chargers are not.

yes, people always get confused....

TeamOrion has the motor checker same as TeamMuchMore...but not the charger at this time...they are different!
I'm kind of curious myself if Peak will come up with a new charger too...

Someone mentioned about ProTrak....yes, that charger is nice too.

Thanks, the orion one is about $30 more, the motor run in is a moot point as if i get one then ill be keeping my pulsar and can use that. The issue of the magnet holding the temperature sensor on, is the much more one just pressed ontop of the cells when charging?
