This is the Thunder Power TP610C AC/DC 1-6 Cell LiPo Charger. The new Thunder Power RC TP610C-AC/DC charger is the long-anticipated and fully integrated AC/DC version of the popular TP610C. The built-in AC power supply allows the charger to be easily and conveniently powered from a 100-240V outlet while the included DC input power leads can be connected to 12V lead-acid/gel cell batteries for charging at the flying field or outdoor track. The TP610C-ACDC also includes all of the same great features of the TP610C including the ability to charge, discharge and cycle a wide variety of 1-6S LiPo, LiIon and LiFe (A123) batteries, as well as 1-14 cell NiCd and NiMH along with 6-12V Pb (lead-acid) batteries. The built-in LiPo/LiIon/LiFe cell balancer and included balance connector adapter board are readily compatible with all Thunder Power balance connectors and the JST-XH balance connectors found on most other brand batteries. Other great features include an attractive and extremely durable aluminum case, plus the ability to charge at class-leading rates up to 10 amps and to install free firmware updates available from the web site. Best of all these pro-level features are all available at a price and value that’s hard to beat while being backed by Thunder Power RC’s industry-leading 2-year warranty.

Thunder Power TP610C AC/DC 1-6 Cell LiPo Charger w/Balancer
great little charger. Powerful. this summer on hot day in the sun caused a small issue where it overheated but once cooled down it went back to work. Recommend using a fan to keep it cool if not able to keep it int eh shade. I bought a second one bc it works so well!)

I'm back again. After a year and a half with this charger I can still give it 5 stars. This thing gets a workout nearly every week without even a hiccup. I even tried it on my dead garden tractor battery. Charged it for about 15 min. and it started right up. Awesome little charger.)

I love this charger! It is the fifth lipo charger I have had and so far it is the best. It will charge and balance 6s lipos! The charger will run off 12 volts. I charge 2s and 3s batteries and it works perfect. The only thing I dont like is that on higher cell counts it wont charge at 10 anps it will only charge at 3.8 amps but for my batterys its perfect.)

Very good charger. Sleek design and excellent functionality. Plus it has a power supply so you can charge indoors and also from a car battery. Maintains a relatively small size despite the power supply. I'm looking forward to getting some lipos for my cars now.)

Thunder Power TP610C AC/DC 1-6 Cell LiPo Charger w/Balancer
I bought this for $115 in 2009 at the Vegas RC Raceway. Still running it today 11/30/2016 at 702 Raceway. Seems to work as good as the day I bought it. I am slower than some other locals in 17.5 touring and 17.5 2wd buggy, but I think it has more to do with my driving than a lack of LiHv charging capability. I don't think setting the cut off voltage higher 4.2v/cell is legal at our track at this time anyway. My touring car pack is 7500 mah, and this charger is capable of putting 7.5 amps through it (1C). The 1 amp discharge rate is a little slow to dump the rest of the pack after the main race, but they're usually close to 7.8 amps at that point anyway so it only takes a minute to discharge it for storage.)

Have one, can't stand it. Has issues with balance charging all my packs at rates above .5C. The AC socket is loose on the thing. Took it back to the store ( bought it local ) and the fellow at the store who also owns one personally has all the same issues. The manual is garbage, and the interface is the worst I've used to date. Can't recommend, in fact, after this experience; can't recommend the brand for anything.)

Love it! Great little charger once you get it figured out :-)
for the next version, they should make the 12v battery input leads removable also.)

Thunder Power TP610C AC/DC 1-6 Cell LiPo Charger w/Balancer
The Thunder Power charger has been a great little charger for me. it will charge at 10 amps on DC and 7.5 amps on AC. For lipo's its my go to charger, compact easy to use (once you figure out the menu sequence, instructions suck!). It has more memory space than I will ever use! I give it 5 stars, but it does have a couple of little things that I wish were different. I wish the DC inputs were not permanently attached, and on nimh the delta v stays the same across all the memory slots (having different delta vs is handy for different style packs).)

Great charger for the money. I charge 2s and 4s packs for a Losi Scte and a Mugen Eco and its flawless. I love the storage charge feature. Much better charger than my Dynamite Passport Ultra and cheaper.)

perfect for 1 and 2 cell lipo application. The only thing that concerns me is there is no cooling or vents. I know the whole charger suppose to be a heatsink, but it does get hot!)
