Thread: How often do you Charge your TriTronics Pro 100, 200, 500 or Flyway (G3)

    I too voted before realizing my 1998 model Flyway special was not on the list. Old style chargers, no cradle. It has new batteries from Batteries Plus that last nearly forever between charges.

    I was told Tri-Tronics are sooo smart compared to other brands that the stimulation given is always the same no matter the level of the batteries and this was a good reason to use Tri-Tronics.

    When done training,, collar and transmitter back in charging cradle.

    Never have to worry that way if tools arnt working perfectly.

    I charge pretty much every other week I have yet to have a problem with them being charged and I was under the assumption they were like a cell phone battery where you should let them get low before charging them

    Use the 500 until it craps out and switch to the 100 while 500 is charging.

    I charge my Pro 500 once a week, other than that it stays in my truck. Never had a problem yet.

    I put mine on about once every few weeks or if it dies on me. I don't even like keeping phone chargers or any other type of charger even plugged in, fear of gremlins coming through the wiring.

    Chris, I have Flyway & ran tracer lights on my collars and wondered if using them was allowing water to get in the collars I have since quit using them also. Wondering if you could elaborate a bit on your problems with them.

    Though I usually get my flyway and collars on the charger before they go dead I have had this exact thing happen so glad you posted it up thought it was an anomally, as I have had it happen only once with a spare collar. Have to try to be more diligent in rotating my collars onto the charger.

    Tri-Tronics is a site sponsor? Do they ever have a representative chime in and give advice on their products? Just curious?
