How does the size compare to a TURBO 35 GFX COMPETITION ELECTRONIC.

Thanks,

Ronald

So is the release date still a go or what? I wanted to know why only a 10a discharge? This seems to be somewhat of a draw back since its basicaly a personal matcher for 400 bucks.why not atleast a 35amp discharge? Pros, I would say I realy think as someone said here before we are not pyhsicaly seeing numbers on each cell and as a day,week,or month that goes by after use of a pack with our typical charger to me the potential of the pack is not being used or one cell or more could be bad with out knowing true results. I like the fact that we are going to be able to monitor each pack/cell or even rematch packs. This is a machine that matchers are going to get judged by IMO and could stop some of the whos the best and whos not talk. Cons,What about false peaks? Could this be another reason why the release date was pushed back many times? Seems like the cells need to be locked down good and no movement whatsoever to the unit or false peak could happen. but that could be said with other chargers, but the importance of the individual cell charging seems greater than traditional charge. Overall without having one in my hands I think it would be a great charger and soon HOPEFULY will replace my exsiting chargers.

i respectfully disagree. the ICC's length and width (i.e foot print) is bigger than the gfx. the gfx is a bit taller.

Had mine next to my GFX and the ICC's footprint is a little smaller than it and like you said, not as high.

14lbs.... not quite... Its roughly around 3kg. In comparison in size, ummmm try a protrak, I think its only slighty bigger than the ProTrak 30. But remember this, which other battery charger allow the battery pack sit inside it...

As I posted a few weeks ago. Spintec has problem answering to the huge demand. They first deliver Europe and then the rest of the world. I've seen allready dozens of them in use. So the product really exists and is ok.

BTW: I'm not a Spintec user of Spintec employee or Sponsored in any way
