Who has the TP-210V in stock?

Also, where can I find a charger that will charge a 10s pack at 8 amps?

Hey D.W.,

When I'm looking for a hobby item in stock, I start at the source. Generally if the source doesn't have them in stock, then it's pretty much a given that nobody else will. In this case, that's Thunder Power at www.thunderpower-batteries.com IIRC.

As far as the charger, I don't know if such a high-capacity charger exists as of yet. 10S is still not terribly common, let alone high-capacity 10S packs that would require an 8 Amp charge rate. I think the closest you can get right now is the Astro 109, which only does a 9S pack at 8 Amps.

The one caveat of charging a 10S pack at 8 Amps is the power requirement for the charger. 42 Volts at 8 Amps is 336 Watts, which must be drawn from a 12V battery or other power supply. Ignoring the power requirements of the step-up circuitry and other losses, that's 28 Amps. Counting losses, I would expect the draw to be 40-45 Amps. Hope you fly with friends and have a set of jumper cables ;)

The first 100 TP-1010C chargers and TP-210V Smart Balancers have been shipped and are now on back order.
Being one who does some Beta / Field Testing for Charlie Wang I have received one of each and I have a Thread on RC Groups here.

The 1010C has a max. of 210 watt output. It will charge up to 5S at up to 10A and 10S at up to 5A.

Thanks Matt, Was just hoping that someone would have one in stock. I realize they only shipped a few, but still had my hopes up. I have no problem with the power supply. We have 110v AC at the flying field, and I have a 50 amp 14vdc supply. Just need a charger that can put out the power.

Right now, I am having to either charge at 3.5 amps with my Orbit (which is waaaay to slow), or undo the "Y" connector and charge with a pair of 109's (which is too much trouble). Will just keep my eyes open and maybe someone will come out with one soon (I hope).

Everydayflyer, I have been following your threads on the balancers and charger. Great information, thanks! If someone doesn't come out with a high voltage/high amp charger by the summer, I will probably go with a pair of TP 1010's.

Just ordered one from shulmanaviation.com. They said they have a few more available.
