Ive owned this charger before and it worked great ...the only reason i got rid of it was because i had a bad charge lead but thought it was the charger itself lol so i bought a new charger and ended up selling this one......i picked up a thunder power 820CD and wouldnt you know it ..it had the exact same programming everything was identical lol so basically doesnt matter what charger you get in certain brands because there all made in the same place when it comes to certain companies just with different cases

I've been using the Twinspec for about 6 months and it has performed flawlessly. I charge 2's saddles and stick packs up 20 amps and the Orion has never let me down.

The fans vary from loads or charging rates. Usually if I am charging at 20 amps both are running. May want to charge 2 packs at the same time just to make sure both are operating. Mine have operated individually and simultaneously at different times.

IMO- Best charger made. As I have used just about every major brand out, and found not only the Charge-ability to be great, but the durability and options to be the best.

--As far as the fans- They both are based on load rating and Temp, so they will run a separate times.

Looks interesting. Can it charge to an adjustable percentage of full, like 95%, 70%, etc? Can it show percentage while charging? Are the internal resistance measurements per cell or full pack? Thanks in advance.
