I'm comparing the 206B to a TP 610C, which I have used for 3 years and am quite satisfied with.
They are very comparable in basic charging capacity.
Reasons I chose the 206B over another TP 610C for my 2nd charger:
1. Greater range of input supply voltage.
2. Good reviews from a variety of sources.
3. Constant current, low voltage foam cutter supply capability; (Haven't tried it yet, but as a foam scratchbuilder, I'm quite excited at the prospect.).
4. Good reviews for Progressive as a vendor, (which have been lived up to).
5. 206B manual is more thorough and easier to make sense of than the 610C manual.
After a few initial uses for charging I must say the 206B is more intuitive to use than the 610C, and the display is easier to read. Setup is not too different than the 610C, so the initial learning curve is not so steep.
Quite pleased with all aspects of the purchase.
I am replacing another brand charger with the 206B from progressive. Delivery was fast and for the money and the features the 206B was a much better value. I have also purchased the 350W power supply to go with the charger. Due to the small size of each unit I intend to make a portable carrying box to use both at home and at the flying field.
ProgressiveRC Comment: Thanks for your feedback and support. Check out our Neutrino and Sidekick cases which both offer the size and accessories to complete a slick carrying case.
- This charger is leaps and bounds above other chargers I've had. It's simple to operate,easy to read display,and best of all it's fast. I'd highly recommend this charger to anyone wanting a very good,and fast charger.
- Great shipping from an awesome company! Charger works wonderfully and is exactly what I wanted. Thanks!
- Haven't had a chance to hook it up yet so I'm rating the quality as average until I can give it a workout. As far as service- I ordered it and the thing almost hit me in the back of the head when I pressed enter! Product was well packaged and I'll definitely look to Progressive for future purchases. Thanks!
- Super chargeur, il reste une référence dans sa catégorie avec ses 10 A de charge max ! N'hésitez pas et surtout sur ce site qui répond aux mails et qui est prêt à vous aider. Je recommande !
- Excellent service, fast shipping. I've had this charger about a week and so far it's been great. The Lipo storage feature is very handy and one reason I bought this one... it automatically charges or discharges to 3.85v storage. Also shows Internal Resistance numbers for each cell and the pack without having to charge first.
- bought this charger so I could charge 2 different battery sizes at the same time. Worked out great. Very fast delivery and an outstanding product.
Had a quick delivery to Australia, very impressed with speed out of the US.
Quality of product looks great, yet to use it as still waiting on the RC to be delivered.
Bought this product on advice from a friend. This charger is awesome !! I received it 2 days after I place the order. The charger does everything I need. It's accurate and small. I highly recommend this charger and dont buy from anyone but
Progressive RC !
