LRP introduce updated Pulsar Touch charger

LRP introduce updated Pulsar Touch charger

LRP’s popular Pulsar Touch DC charger received a small update in the form of a new UV light resistant case, updated discharge cut-off voltage settings and an additional EHR to XHR balancer adapter. The updated case will prevent the charger from becoming unsightly due to sun bleaching while the new cut-off values will prevent LiXX batteries from becoming deep discharged. The additional balancer adapter on the other hand improves the compatibility to all commonly used LiXX packs. Otherwise the charger, whose first version was released back in 2010, remains unchanged.
