The ProTek R/C "Prodigy 610ez AC/DC" LiHV/LiPo/LiFe/NiMH AC/DC Battery Charger is a single port AC/DC charger that can handle 6S packs, is capable of 10 amp charge rates, worldwide 100V/220V voltage versatility, with 100 Watts of power... the next generation of Prodigy has arrived.
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.
Dual Power Input
The power source can be 11-18V DC input or a 100-240V AC source. With a builtin power supply, users can directly connect the AC power cord to the main AC input. The power supply can accept AC power from all over the world without the worry of damage.

How To Calculate Your Charging Needs
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). For example, if using the Touch 625 AC and a 6S LiPo battery, you would divide 200 Watts by 22.2 Volts to realize a 9 Amp charge rate. This means that the charger can supply a maximum of 9 amps to a 22.2 Volt 6S battery. This amp rate will gradually reduce as the battery voltage increases during the charge cycle.
LiPo Battery & Charger Warnings:
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
WARNING NOTE: This charger is not recommended for use with Traxxas batteries with ID connectors or Spektrum Smart batteries with IC connectors. Charging batteries equipped with ID or IC connectors may require additional steps in order to safely balance charge your Lipo batteries. Please refer to your vehicle or aircraft owner’s manual for recommended batteries and charging equipment.

I can only say that the charger I purchased has had very good reviews and thats why I purchased it, the only problem was it was not recognizing the battery pack being plugged in. I use two different packs and two different cables to test every possible thing that might be wrong and So Here Endith The lesson ! Spending a little more and supporting local business goes a Long Way to Future sales and the health of any one who does business in this manner.
Great charger for the price
Fast charger a true 10amp and is awesome for $65
Lots of features and saftey features.
VERY small charger and almost no sound.
Can set up for multi pack charging with proper balance board a huge plus.
Balnces the packs perfectly but is slow once one hits 4.20 and the other isn't.
Sometimes the charger will say the battery is at 4.20 a cell when there no where near it, could be my batteries spiking but have no other to test, it's done it about 3 times but just reset the charge and no issues. Honestly its about 80% my batts spiking and being the issue but still about 20% likely the charger mesaing up. Since it's the first time I've had the issue but I've been using a old beat up lipo charger for a long time.
I'd buy this charger over no questions asked it best bang for your buck compared to any other o the market under the $100 price point.
Either the bats or this is not working.
I used this charger for the first time tonight. It is easy to work with. It charges my Venom NiMH and LiPo. I use it for both battery types for my Tamiya TT01 touring car and my Traxxas TRX4 trail - crawler truck. Great purchase. I am very happy with this product.
But besides that it was a great charger for the first week. Hopefully amain will help me with it.
I will add a update.
