Default Trinity Dyna Pulse Discharger

Has anyone tried using this product? Is this better than the Spintech battery manager?

I've had one for about 2 months and it works nicely. I never used a spintech so I can't compare them.

I've seen the Trinity but I'm a Spintec guy. I like the extra 5 amps you get from the Spintec. Only setback with it is if you are running 4 cell you can only use teh Trinity. The Spintec is nice though.

I have 2 Dyna-Pulses'. They work just fine, just like the Spintech except they come out to 30 amps and can do 4 cell packs as well. Plus they're cheaper.

aside not being able to do 4cell Spintec is better!!! they originally invented it so i would rather get the real deal vs the real copy.

thats called competition my friend. look at tamiya's TC, most of tc nowadays are a copy. and thats what brings the cost down.

Let's put the whole who copied what aside for now....

I have used both. I can tell you there is 1 advantage at the very least for the Dyna Pulse..... its hell a LOT easier to read!!! The Spintec readout was cool the first time, but that's about it.

I was a little dissapointed in my Dyna Pulse. I was under the impression that it would discharge rather quickly, not taking over 5 hours to discharge a full pack. At my club track there is not enough time to use the battery a second time that day if you discharge using the Dyna Pulse and then charge again. However, it does tell me which packs are my good ones.

This would happen with the Spintec as well. My IB's after running 5 min of 19T would take 3 and 1/2 hours to finish the cycle!!! It worked good for 3300's because the cycle was a lot shorter, but not with the new IB's. You were probably thinking this was a linear discharger.

After you use this pulse discharger, what differences do you notice from your batteries?
