Thunder Power RC TP820CD charger/discharger

Thunder Power RC TP820CD charger/discharger

The all-new Thunder Power RC TP820CD is their first ever dual port and the most anticipated, most powerful and most advanced multi-chemistry charger, discharger, cycler and balancer system. With up to 800 watts of total charging power, nearly 4-times that of their popular TP1010C, the TP820CD is equipped with two ports that function completely independently to charge, discharge and cycle a wide variety of 1-8S LiPo, LiIon and LiFe (A123) batteries, as well as 1-24 cell NiCd and NiMH along with 6-30V Pb (lead-acid) batteries. The built-in 2-8S LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123) cell balancers, one for each port, and included balance connector adapter boards are readily compatible with all Thunder Power balance connectors and the JST-XH balance connectors found on many other batteries. Additional features include built-in data logging and viewing on the large class-leading and easy-to-read 48-character blue backlit LCD screen, internal resistance measurement and an advanced Storage Mode function to automatically charge or discharge LiPo/ LiIon/LiFe (A123) batteries as needed.

Features:
– Powerful all-in-one dual port charger, discharger and cycler system with built-in LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123) cell balancers that offer maximum safety, performance and easy-to-see individual cell voltages
– The included balance connector adapter boards (2pcs) allow the built-in balancers to be used with 2-8S Thunder Power-compatible balance connectors as well as the JST-XH balance connectors found on many other brand batteries from Align, Dynamite®, E-flite®, ParkZone® and more.
– Convenient and flexible dual (two) port design charges, discharges and cycles 1-8S LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123), 1-24 cell NiCd/NiMH and 6-30V Pb (lead-acid) batteries on each port independently or simultaneously
– More than double the charging power, up to 800 watts total (400 watts per port), of other similar class chargers with selectable charge rates from 0.2 amps up to 20 amps for each port
– The perfect choice for safe and ultra-fast charging at rates of 3-6C and beyond for the latest-generation LiPo batteries
– Charge two 5S or 6S 5000mAh batteries at rates up to 4C for 10S or 12S battery setup charge times of as little as 15 minutes or less* – even faster than single port chargers that require cumbersome parallel charging and a more powerful power supply
– Advanced Storage Mode function for LiPo/LiIon/LiFe (A123) batteries will automatically charge or discharge as needed to achieve storage level voltage
– 24 user-programmable memories plus built-in data logging and viewing with internal resistance measurement, battery voltage, input voltage, temperature and more
– Fully-adjustable charge capacity limit, per cell end voltage and low voltage cutoff settings for all chemistries to maximize safety, charge and discharge performance
– Durable and compact aluminum case with dual computer-controlled cooling fans and a large, class-leading and easy-to-read 48-character blue backlit LCD screen
– Wide input voltage range from 10.5-28.0V for higher efficiency and power output when using 24.0-28.0V power supplies
– Adjustable output power distribution per port, input power current limiting and low voltage cutoff settings to maximize performance while also protecting the charger and input power supply
– Future firmware updates can be downloaded for free from www.ThunderPowerRC.com when new features, battery chemistry and other updates are made available and are easily uploaded to the charger using a standard mini USB cable
– Full industry-leading 2-year warranty and support from Thunder Power RC
