- Unbelievable charger. Has made virtually all of my "ol' faithful" charging / IR meters obsolete. I was hesitant of spending the money, but man was it worth it. Buy this and sell the rest of your stuff!
- This charger is easy to use and can do everything you want. Very happy with the charger.
- Great product, easy to use, intuitive menu.
- Almost anything you can throw at it, it will charge. Although I couldn't charge a three cell transmitter pack w/ built in balencer. I'm now charging batteries anywhere from nine to twelve minutes! WOW!
- I find most chargers don't give me enough information about the most important component in my model. If you want to know exactly how your battery is taking a charge or the internal resistance of your pack's cells, this is the charger for you. Expensive? Nonsense, the first model you lose to a bad battery will cost more.
- My order was shipped the same day I placed it and it was at my door within 2 days. They also contacted me after to make sure everything was ok. Great service made in the U.S.A.
LOADS of power! Very good for parallel charging!
And customer phone support here is awesome!
- My initial review posted on 5/23/11 says it all. I just bought another PL8 from David. This is the best charger out there. Great quality, value, ease of use, and great service from both Progressive and FMA.
i've had several chargers and was on the look for the last charger I would buy for a LONG time. It was this or the icharger and after 2 weeks of reading and research I went with this. The power output of this thing sold me over the icharger as i'm looking to charge multiple 6 cells quickly for my 600 heli.
after hooking it up (using 24v 1450watt supply) I first did a discharge of 2 3300 6s packs, at 40a discharge this didnt take long
I then set them to charge in parallel at 25amp (12.5a each) 16minutes and done with both packs. Very impressive.
Cant wait to do all 6 at once.
i'm selling off all my other chargers.
This is a do all charger, that you cant go wrong with
