ProTek RC "Prodigy 620 DUO" LiPo/LiFe/NiMH DC Battery Charger (6S/20A/400W x 2)
This is a wonderful charger, it does make a bit of noise when running, but considering its capable of dumping 20 Amps into each battery it certainly needs to keep cool. The build quality is exceptional and feels like a solid block of aluminum in the hand. Compared to an old Venom battery charger the quality of ProTek stuff becomes quite apparent. The charger only comes with blank charging leads with bare connections for attaching your plug of preference, I picked up some ProTek "lead squids" to use with it and those too work great and are of exceptional build quality. If you plan to use this charger at home you will likely need to pick up an AC -> DC power supply, and a pretty hefty one at that to power it. Out of the box this charger is DC input only, so you can hook it up to your car battery or if you happen to have a pile of deep cycle batteries lying around (like I do) you can use those to power it. If you are looking for a powerful dual independent channel battery charger look no further, this is it!

ProTek RC "Prodigy 620 DUO" LiPo/LiFe/NiMH DC Battery Charger (6S/20A/400W x 2)
I second that. I have been using it for a few weeks now and It's a great charger, intuitive, efficient and accurate. The manual is well written, despite a couple of mistakes in it... Needs a beefy power supply to take full advantage of it. The only thing I'm not totally satisfied is the puny 18awg charge leads supplied. As the balance boards cables (6s to 6s), the charge leads are also too small, making it a bit tricky to use a Lipo charging bag when charging two batteries. Protek sells 20cm balance cables that should be standard.

I don't understand why the super pro 1000 is recommended when the charger can only handle up to 18v. The super pro 1000 @ 18v is maybe what.. 700w?

Very easy charger to use. Very nice having 2 separate screens instead of having to toggle between them. Specs make this a beast of a charger.. Must have charger..

This charger is amazing! The fan does a great job and the options are endless. I would highly recommend it to anyone that needs a high powered charger like this. I would also recommend getting parallel charging boards for each port. You will need to solder on your own connectors. The cell balancing is also spot on and the features while the batter is charging is also good.

I love my Prodigy 620 Duo from Protek. The ability to charge and monitor two batteries at once is amazing. Having one charger instead of two makes packing a lot easier as well, plus that blue aluminum case looks sharp!

Love the high amp output! Easy to use and navigate through the many features. Storage mode is a very useful feature when you plan on setting a side your LiPo packs for a while, it ensures the perfect voltage to store LiPo batteries at.

I've used this charger from when it was first released. It's very easy to navigate through the functions and get to your settings. I use this charger at least 3-5 times a week, either at the track or playing around in front of my house and have never had a problem. You cannot beat the quality.

I do not own this particular product and I will say that everything I have owner from Protek has been great quality and done precisely what I bought it for. But I feel for the near $200 price range this should have an A/C option built in. And with the Hitec X4 out now, there is no reason for the money it should also be a quad charger.... Just saying.
