We'll be using this blog for any number of things as we move forward: technical articles, in-depth looks at new products, sneak peeks of prototypes we're working on - basically anything that we think is interesting, now we've got a space to share it with you!

I can't think of a better way to kick this off than with the most exciting new product we've had come through in a while - the upcoming iCharger 4010Duo.

We've all been waiting a long time for this bad boy - we were hoping to have a prototype to show off at IRCHA 2011 - but now that it's here, it's clear that it was worth the wait. The PowerLab 8 has been the king of chargers for a long time, with its 40 amp charge rate and its ability to handle packs up to 8S. The 4010 will give you 40 amps too - on each channel.

That's not even the most exciting part, though. Not once you realize that you can combine the two output channels in synchronous mode and charge at up to 70 amps! For those of you working with large capacity packs, get ready to revolutionize your charging.

December can't get here fast enough!
