This is the ProTek R/C "Prodigy 640" High Power LiPo/LiFe/NiMH DC Battery Charger. The next generation of Prodigy has arrived. Can your charger charge a 6S pack at 40 amps with power to spare? Does it take forever to parallel charge multiple packs at once, because your charger is lacking? Demanding enthusiasts demand power. With 1000 Watts of power and 40 amps of charging current on tap, the Prodigy 640 is the obvious choice for your high power charging needs.

Features include a 1000W Energy Transfer Discharge function that allows the user to transfer stored energy from a charged battery pack, back into a Pb battery DC power source. The Digital Power mode allows users to supply power to additional DC powered equipment. The Pre-Charge function gives users an opportunity to save Lithium batteries that have been discharged too far. Additionally, the software can be updated to support future upgrades, and a heavy duty XT60 connector is used to provide a safe and secure charge lead connection.

These features only scratch the surface of what the Prodigy 640 delivers. Grab a Prodigy 640 and see for yourself why Protek R/C is found on the benches of some of the most respected R/C professionals in the world, including racer Atsushi Hara, pilot Tim Jones and more. The next generation has arrived. Don't get left behind.

Great charger. Easy to use. Can charge everything you throw at it. I am still learning some of the higher end options on this thing.

ProTek RC Prodigy 640 High Power LiPo/LiFe DC Battery Charger (6S/40A/1000W)
Got one from here last year for my birthday. Let me tell you I love this thing! It charges safe and fast, does any kind of battery you want, and I like how the bullets for the power supply come on it already. Only thing that is a pain is the eflite connector because I have to resolder a new battery lead if I want it to be compatible with other connections, but it is worth it if you want a high output, reliable charger! Way to go ProTek.
