Really? Here in Canada the dealer told me that the Giant charger is over $750. And the Cycle Satiator is $400. How much is the Giant charger in the States? It’s not on any websites I’ve checked.I would have bought the Cycle Satiator as my second if it hadn't been more expensive than a giant one here in the US. It looks like a great, reliable charger.
If that's true, I too would grab it. I just can't believe there's such an incredible difference in price between the US and Canada for the charger. I'm going to call some dealers in upper NY and VT this morning when they open. If it's true, I would get the Giant one from the States and forget about the Cycle Satiator. But whatever, I DO need a second charger. I'm told that when the percentage remaining gets low, the estimated remaining distance is completely wrong. And for me, even without running errands during the day, I'm dangerously close to running out of battery just with my two-way commute. So being able to top up at work is going to be needed.
I've called three Giant dealers in upper NY State (and one of them I know as a really top quality dealer as I've bought from them often... High Peaks Cyclery in Lake Placid), and none of them have a charger and none have ever sold one separately and none even have a price. Two of them called me back to say they actually need to call Giant on Monday in order to find price and availability. Seems surprising to me that none of their clients have ever requested a second charger. So probably I'll hear back from them sometime next week.

SHRUG It's a bit mutch to ask us to reply via Facebook.Ya so giant energypak 500 charger has a male XLR 3 pin connector. But just your typically 36V Li-ion Charger won't work. Has anyone found a 3rd party 36V charger that will work with the giant energypak 500 power supply? if you do please contact me at facebook.com/bobmutch/
