As far as I know (and I just found out about a new one in another thread), the current step chargers are:

Duratrax IntelliPeak Ice
Competition Electronics Pit Bull X3
Team Orion Advantage
Much More Cell Master
Supernova Competition
Robitronic Overloader

I bet that poor chap is devastated. He thought it was a really good joke.

What version is the latest protrak and how much do they retail for in the UK?

Thanks,

(you cant call home no..)

But you can call the good jokes hotline.

Pro-Trak is made in the UK. Should be easier for you to obtain and keep upgraded then for us here in the states.

Apparently the APS 3-in-1 is being tested with a new BIOS flash to do step charging. It has new status bars on the screen and everything, it looked pretty cool. It was strictly (at that time) for 0V equalized and discharged cells. The regular charge programs weren't even an option on their experimental unit, but I'm sure that'd change when it gets released.

I hope your not being a smart***! Since you only have less than 40 posts I just figure you have really never seen the pro trak and it's capabilities.

Thanks, guys. Looks like it's the Ice unless the Robitronic comes to the states soon.

Gees, have a little fun with you kids and all I get is grief. Grow up and get over yourselves.

I'm sure the Pro-Trak is a very fine charger, though it is a bit pricey. For the same amount of money, I can get 3 Duratrax Ices. And, the Ice doesn't look like a Trimline (j/k, and for those who are too young to know, the Trimline was Ma Bell's main touch tone phone - and, for those who don't know who Ma Bell was, well, I just don't have enough time).

Later,
Actually Crismon Eagle (Chris Rhodes) on here is the Distributor in the US for Pro trak. He can do all the upgrades and such right here in the US. I just got mine today and its great. He has been doing some testing on IB cells for me and nothing but great things from him and the Pro Trak.

Best of all the Pro-trak can now be bought in the US for around the same as a GFX or slightly less.

Yeah he sent me a PM. It is nice knowing this know. I loved mine when I had it but due to having to send back and forth to the UK I got rid of it. But know I am definetly considering getting another one.
