Dual Channel Outputs + LiHV Compatibility 

The ProTek R/C "Prodigy 66 Duo AC/DC" LiHV/LiPo/LiFe/NiMH AC/DC Battery Charger is a dual port AC/DC charger that can handle 6S packs, is capable of up to a 6 amp charge rate, worldwide 100V/220V voltage versatility, with two 50 Watts of power... the next generation of Prodigy has arrived.

Two Independent Outputs
The Prodigy 66 DUO AC/DC features dual inputs to simultaneously charge two independent battery packs. This provides the flexibility to set charging parameters independently for each channel to accommodate for nearly any need.  

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.

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.

  • Dual Channel Digital AC/DC Balance Charger
  • Maximum 6A Charge Current, up to 5W
  • Hi-Voltage LiHV charging mode allows charging end voltage up to 4.40V

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.

ProTek RC "Prodigy 66 Duo AC/DC" LiHV/LiPo Battery Balance Charger (6S/6A/50W)
I purchased this charger to replace my HiTec X1 Touch that I had since 2014. The discharge feature in my X1 had finally quit. So far, the Prodigy 66 Duo has been great. I have charged shorty Li-HV, standard shorty Lipo's, basher batteries, and the battery for my controller. It's done great balance charging everything and then storage charging after using them. I have used the discharge a couple of times. It also works well. So far, I like the charger.

Love this charger. Hook the battery up, adjust the settings and, run it. Charges all modern batteries for many types if you purchase the squid charger plug with it as well. Highly recommend this charger.

I recently purchased this and have not used it a ton but can already tell this is better then the Hitec X2 AC Plus Black Edition AC/DC Multi-Charger I own . That I used for a month before it started smoking on me I will continue buying ProTek chargers from now on.

Have had this charger for about a week. Works as advertised so far. We have used it to charge 2, 3 and 4S li-po's and some Ni-MH without issue. We did have to buy a couple adapters as most of our batteries are XT-60. Would have been nice if those were included.

ProTek RC "Prodigy 66 Duo AC/DC" LiHV/LiPo Battery Balance Charger (6S/6A/50W)
I really like this charger. It is really easy to use being that I just got into using lipos and electrics in R/C. One thing that I wish I would've known about charging before was being able to increase amps. The most that I am able to charge is 6 amps.

ProTek RC "Prodigy 66 Duo AC/DC" LiHV/LiPo Battery Balance Charger (6S/6A/50W)
Charger works fine, has exactly the same menus as the Skyrc charger I had before purchasing this Protek unit.
So the switch was seamless.

The product is very good.
I give it 3 stars because it does not come with the necessary cables to actually connect the batteries.
So if you purchase this, bear in mind that it is not plug & play. You will need to buy the connectors for your LiPo/LiFe/NiMh batteries separately, which adds extra cost and inconvenience.

First time I am actually let down by Protek RC (though this is easy to fix, just add the cables guys...)

I was just getting into the lipo seen and looking for a good charger. I came upon this charger and liked what I saw and other reviews on it. I picked it up and glad that I did. Its a very easy to use and very nice charger. My only complaint is that it would be nice if it did have an on/off switch instead of plug or unplug from a wall outlet. I have only had this charger for a couple of months now and it had been working great.I would recommend this ProTek charger to anyone.

ProTek RC "Prodigy 66 Duo AC/DC" LiHV/LiPo Battery Balance Charger (6S/6A/50W)
Was the first battery charger I bought, and 8 months down the road still works perfectly, I've had zero problems with my lipos, and I run them quite often. Between the balance charge and the storage charge my batteries are constantly preforming the same as the day I bought them. My only complaint is the discharge of batteries can take a hour or two if I dont use them after racing, but that's to be expected. Great charger my only regret is I didnt buy the 4 batteries at once one, but 2 to 3 hours to charge up 7 lipos isnt half bad.
