Hi-Voltage Capable
This charger features a Hi-Voltage LiHV mode that allows you to safely charge Hi-Voltage LiHV capable batteries. You can adjust the charging end voltage of this mode up to 4.40V per cell, which is considerably higher than 4.20V per cell of an ordinary LiPo battery. Charging at this higher end voltage requires a Hi-Voltage LiHV capable battery, but the power gains are significant to the overall punch and power for the R/C model. But please note: battery voltages exceeding 4.20V per cell is prohibited from sanctioned racing rules, such as ROAR, IFMAR, etc.

NOTE: To determine if this charger is suitable for your application, you must perform this calculation to determine the maximum amp rate the charger can supply. Divide the Watts of the charger by the Voltage of the battery pack. This will tell you the maximum amp rate the charger can deliver (Watts / Voltage = Amps). So using the 612 QUAD AC as an example and a 6S LiPo battery pack, would be 100 Watts divided by 22.2 Volts, which equals 4.5 Amps. This means that the charger can supply a maximum of 4.5 amps to a 22.2 Volt 6S battery. This amp rate will gradually reduce as the battery voltage increases during the charge cycle.

IMPORTANT:
1) DO NOT leave the battery in your model when charging
2) DO NOT leave unattended when charging
3) ALWAYS balance charge the battery
4) ALWAYS use a LiPo charging bag
5) YOU MUST use a Li-Poly specific charger to charge the pack (NiMH or NiCD only chargers WILL NOT WORK!)
6) YOU MUST not over discharge the Li-Poly battery pack
7) READ &  UNDERSTAND the instructions carefully before operating this battery 

Includes:

  • (1) Prodigy 610 QUAD AC Charger
  • (1) DC Power Input Cable w/XT60 Connector
  • (1) AC Power Input Cable
  • (1) JST Connector Charge Lead
  • (1) Futaba Connector Charge Lead
  • (4) T-Plug Charge Leads
  • (1) Alligator Clip Charge Lead

ProTek RC "Prodigy 610 QUAD AC" LiHV/LiPo AC/DC Battery Charger
This charger works great. Does a good job balance and storage charging which is mostly all I care about. Having the built in power supply is great so I can run it at home without an external supply or at the track off of a 12v battery. I 1have used it to charge my 4S batteries at 6.5A which is not bad, would have liked 150w per channel instead but it's still pretty good. Having 4 channels to work with is great because I never have to wait for a battery to finish before starting the next. Also great for storage charging at the end of the day.

Pros:
- 4 individual channels
- comes with 4 deans charge leads
- comes with 4 balance boards
- comes with battery clamps and leads for DC as well as AC power cord for 110v
- controls are easy to use and understand
- can configure any or all charging channels as a power output at up to 24v

Cons:
- DO NOT LEAVE DC (battery) LEADS CONNECTED TO CHARGER WHEN USING 110V AC POWER, despite there being no mention of this in the manual the DC input port provides the full output of the AC power supply when active, if you accidentally short the DC input leads it will blow the AC power supply (if the alligator clips touch for example). This will result in only being able to power the charger via the DC input as your AC power supply will be dead.
- cooling fan seems to run constantly even if you aren't charging and it's reasonably loud
- DC input maximum is 18v so when at the track you can't run it off of 2 deep cycle batteries in series, would have been nice to set it up to handle 24v input.

Aside from the manual missing the obvious warning regarding the ability to smoke your AC power supply by shorting the DC inputs when the AC power supply is in use I think this is a great charger. I would definitely recommend it. I would have given it 5 stars if the manual included the warning, or better yet if they had integrated a breaker to prevent this from being possible.)

ProTek RC "Prodigy 610 QUAD AC" LiHV/LiPo AC/DC Battery Charger
This is the best charger I have ever used, ease of use and versatile. A few problems you should know, out of the box you can't charge anything. It doesn't come with any actual useable charge leads, you will need to buy them extra. I thought this funny for such an expensive charger and an extra 2$ wouldn't have killed them but oh well. Putting the lack of hardware aside it gives me more than enough power to run my dual para boards and have power to spare.)

ProTek RC "Prodigy 610 QUAD AC" LiHV/LiPo AC/DC Battery Charger
Excellent charger, my second. Plenty of power and it charges fast and all kinds of batteries including Hi-Voltage LiHV. It includes a wide variety of cable and adapters. Easy to use and there is a separate screen and set of controls for each port plus an On/Off switch. Great customer service and support including a one year warranty.)
