I don't know how many times when I was using the old Indy booster2 I'd be working on other things and realize, ahhh, I left a pack on the tray an hour ago! I probably helped a couple packs die prematurely dong that.

Sounds stupid asking this.

Does the Trinity Real Time 2 tray has an auto cut off system??
It discharge at 5amp and lights go off at 0.9v. Do we need to babysit the tray when we put our NiMH cells on it???

I am very new to EP (previously from GP).
I have gotten myself 2 packs of FUKUYAMA match cells (1.17+) to try it out.
Was just wondering, i don have those fancy chargers. Still using my trusted old KO213 charger. Is this charger good enough to charge match cells without hurting the internal parts of the batts? If it does, what charger (of cos cost would play an important role) would be recommended for this cells???

That tray looks interesting, but the price. OMG, I hope the street price is lower. One other thing is that my packs are reversed to where pos. & Neg are on the tray, would that cause a problem?

The trinity real time 2 does not have a cutoff.

Does the KO213 charge NiMH cells? To get the most out of the cells, I would suggest any Competition Electronics Charger (turbo 30, 35 or GFX, Pitbull) or LRP makes a nice charger. Futaba and Yokomo are another nice choices. Reedy Quasar pro is another good charger. Good luck, it depends on your budget.

Yea. The KO213 does charge NiMH batts. It has a 0.05v delta peak cutoff timing. But thats all.
Thinking of getting a CE Turbocharger 35GFX. Its in my future plan. But is it worth the money??
TIA

The CE GFX is the best charger I have ever used. Well worth the investment mostly when you run top notch Fukuyama cells You will have a lot more options when you run the GFX

i haven't seen a price yet, what are they asking? I know they're getting into batteries too. Those will probably be $$$ as well.

Also, a bunch of us at the Novak US TC Champs saw that & asked Charlie(Suangka) & Bob(Novak) about it, & they were guessing that the street price would be around $80, though I think that price may include a small power supply(but I'm not sure on that one). True, that is pretty steep, but I can't help but wonder if it might still be worth it.....

Novak's new ESC also looks pretty promising, about the size of a Quantum Competition.

And how big is the capacitor you have to run with that one? what's the use making a small ESC if half the parts are on the outside?
