Default The old pitbul version

Hey guys, i just bought an old pitbul version ( the first one) but a friend told me that this charger has the same problems than the old millenium version problem, is it true??
Is this a good charger?
Please, answer me.
Thanks a lot.

does your friend has the same charger? or hes just saying that based on other peoples experience? the best thing to do is to find out for yourself. charge a pack and see how it goes

the blue pitbull works excellent. i ran them for three years. when they false peak, its your batteries. they were the most reliable charger i have used. i still have one and the newer x3 version.

Even the old pitbull has a peak lockout feature to prevent false peaks.
A pitbull does only one thing, charge batteries really well. In my book it is just like a t35 without the extended functions and they can be bought cheap.

Mines been great, until last week, its been false peaking constantly, but its my fault it only started doing it after I let it sit in the sun way too long. It was a great charger though.

Default what probs

Hey man what probs did the milleniu, have, coz false peakin wasnt one of them. People here still run them coz they r so great, i run a millenium PRO and i love it probably will only upgrade for a turbo 35gfx.

As for the pitbull you can pretty much gurantee that any charger comp electronics brings out will last for a while and still work great with newer cells

I don't think the original millinium had a peak lockout. One of my friends constantly had a problem with one pack because of no lockout.
