And now TPRC is excited to introduce the latest addition to its ever-expanding line of chargers, dischargers and balancers with release of the new TP610C-ACDC packed with a long-list of features and more power than other chargers in its class. The TP610C-ACDC is a unique all-in-one charger, discharger and cycler with built-in LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123) cell balancer that offers maximum safety, performance and easy-to-see individual cell voltages making for the ultimate in battery maintenance systems.
As the long-anticipated and fully-integrated AC/DC version of the popular TP610C, the built-in AC power supply allows the charger to be easily and conveniently powered from a 100-240V outlet with the included and removable AC input power cord while also offering the flexibility and convenience of using the included DC input power leads to connect to 12V Pb/lead-acid/gel cell batteries for charging at the flying field or outdoor track. The TP610C-ACDC also includes all the same great features of the TP610C including the ability to charge, discharge and cycle a wide variety of 1-6S LiPo, LiIon and LiFe (A123) batteries, as well as 1-14 cell NiCd and NiMH along with 6-24V Pb (lead-acid batteries. Plus, the built-in 2-6S LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123) cell balancer and included balance connector adapter board are readily compatible with all Thunder Power balance connectors and the JST-XH balance connectors found on most other brand batteries.
Other great features include user-selectable LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123) charge voltage cutoffs (50% storage, 95% and 100%), including ‘Competition Car Mode’ to achieve the maximum ROAR approved voltage levels when racing, and 25 userprogrammable memory slots to minimize the time it takes to set the proper cell counts and charge/discharge rates for their most commonly used batteries. And with up to 60% more charging power (80 watts) than similar class chargers, plus the ability to select charge rates up to a class-leading 10 amps, it’s the perfect choice for ultra-fast charging at rates of 2C+ for popular-sized indoor flyer, park flyer, mini heli and 5000mAh Race series batteries.
The TP610C-ACDC also boasts an easy-to-read back-lit LCD screen designed and optimized to prevent permanent ‘fading’ even when used in high temperature environments and is enclosed in an attractive and extremely durable aluminum case. Also, free firmware updates can be downloaded (from www.ThunderPowerRC.com) and installed (using PGM-V2) when new features, battery chemistry or other updates are made available. Best of all these pro-level features are all available at a value that’s hard to beat while being backed by Thunder Power RC’s industry-leading 2-year warranty.
