This is the ProTek R/C "Prodigy 625 DUO Touch AC" AC/DC Battery Charger. The next generation of Prodigy has arrived. The Prodigy Touch 625 DUO AC features an intuitive and easy-to-use touch screen interface with no physical buttons to wear out. Two independently-controlled 200 Watt internal power supplies provide a staggering 25 amps of charge current - per channel - making the Prodigy 625 DUO Touch AC an excellent choice for both surface and aircraft enthusiasts.
The 625 DUO Touch AC also provides important information during the charging process, including a data graph, internal resistance of the battery and individual cell voltage. Additional features include adjustable per-cell end voltage, worldwide voltage compatibility, automatic cell count recognition, and a Digital Power setting that allows you to power additional DC powered equipment when you aren't charging a battery. These features only scratch the surface of what the Prodigy 625 DUO Touch AC delivers.
There's a reason some of the most respected R/C professionals in the world use ProTek R/C. Pick up the Prodigy 625 DUO Touch AC today and see for yourself.
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.
Prodigy 625 DUO Touch AC Features:
Dual Channel Touch Screen Digital AC/DC Balance Charger
Maximum 25A Charge Current, up to 200W Per Channel
Maximum 5A Discharge Current, up to 30W Per Channel
NOTE: Included power cord is only compatible with Type B 110V outlets. "Type E/F" (PTK-5316), "Type G" (PTK-5317), and "Type I" (PTK-5318) power cords are available and must be purchased separately.
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

absolutely the best charger i have owned so far and my last one was the orion touch duo before it died on me( 5 months owned and no contact back from orion's customer service). the protek 625 is very easy to navigate and very simple to use which is nice compared to some out there but at the same time it also has some very complex features that arent complex to use. also 25 amps of charge rate is ridiculous for an ac/dc charger without having to lug around a huge power supply every where with you. you wont regret buying it!
Excellent charger! I upgraded from a plastic Traxxas EZ Peak charger, which seems like a toy compared to this ProTek unit. The build quality is incredible (it's built like a Sherman tank as the saying goes), and the touch screen interface is excellent. The charger auto-detects the type of battery to be charged/discharged though you want to double-check mAh and charge/discharge rate. The ability to discharge at a higher rate is particularly useful since it was taking 8+ hours to discharge a fully-charged LiPo with my old charger. Overall an outstanding product and I'm very happy with the purchase.
Charger is awesome. I liked the thought of not having to use a separate power supply. Charges up to 25A, shows battery internal resistance on each cell. It is a big bulky and heavy but not anymore than a comparable charger w/separate power supply. Worth every penny...
Fantastic charger ! Very easy to use and powerful . It's light and compact for a charger of its power. Be sure to always plug in to a surge protector as I found out the hard way a surge will blow out the internal power supply.
my only complaint is the massive size of the charger. It is huge compared to my orion touch duo i was using. It takes up a lot of space on my pit table and when storing in the original box it came in it barely fits in an ogio bag standing on end. Other than that it is a great product and pretty easy to use.
Best AC/DC charger you can buy in my opinion. Super easy to use, charges every kind of battery and it's just a super well built powerhouse. If you want the best, here it is. You dont know what you are missing until you get a great charger.. charges everything from my LiFe 7px transmitter battery to my liHV graphene crawler 3s batts to my monster 6500mah 4s graphene HV Protek's.
This Protek RC charger is powerful and very complete while being very easy and intuitive to use!
The measurements per cell are accurate, no abnormal heating observed so far and the ventilation is not too noisy.
In short, very good product for a reasonable price.
This is the best charger I have ever used, ease of use and versatile. A few problems you should know, out of the box you can't charge anything. It doesn't come with any actual useable charge leads, you will need to buy them extra. I thought this funny for such an expensive charger and an extra 2$ wouldn't have killed them but oh well. Putting the lack of hardware aside it gives me more than enough power to run my dual para boards and have power to spare.)
Easy to use and works well. Took a star away as the resistance monitor is not accurate. This is confirmed by amain as well. If I would’ve known this I would’ve spent the extra money to get a charger that has a residence monitor that is accurate. Very disappointing.
