I would almost guarantee they will take the software upgrades. He said that these chargers were using the new software already. Its the same exact charger.

Why is this update thing such a hyp, if it works with current firmware then what's the problem ?

We all want to get bugfixes and future enhancements A123 was just added recently, for example, so if you'd bought a charger just before that which was not upgradeable you'd be left out.

Yeah if you are to venture into that biz, if you just want it to charge your Raptor 10S Lipos and it's working for that, then it's no biggie...

further more, there is no issue with it taking the upgrades as Charlie clearly stated that it is a 1010 charger.

Anyone here purchased one yet? I see that he has sold at least 5 of them.

With a 1010C can you make a backup of the firmware that is on the unit so if you have a problem with an upgrade you can at least get back to where you were?

My concern is trying to update this unit at some point in the future with the TP firmware and having it not work. It would be nice to be able to revert back to a copy of what was working rather than having a disabled unit.

Who knows where you would get it fixed if you have a problem, I guess you could try to send it to TP but they'll probably charge extra since it isn't one of "theirs."

Oh, and why the worry over updates? If what Charlie said is true, these units have beta software for the Ni/Pb batteries (not sure if it is limited to just those types) but, if that software needs to be tweaked or , in a worst case scenario, if the software doesn't work to the point of ruining batteries, it will need to be updated. So, it would be nice to have that option.

I have not seen backup functionality in any of the upgrade tools so far. My 1010C started with V1.95.

Well I went for it.
I'll let you guys know when it arrives.
I'll need the data cable for the balancer and a balancer ofcourse...

I'm not after Ni/Pb possibilities, I just need one for 10S lipos as I'm covered on the rest but I'll be buying the Align 6S charger when it's out as I simply need more chargers so I don't use all night...

Well, I think it's a coin toss due to the number of issues with new-in-box TP1010C's that have needed to be sent back... How would these be dealt with if they go tango uniform (tiits up)?

With that said, the TP1010C I purchase a few months ago was just fine.

Disclaimer: I also jumped on the $129 shipped deal for this grey market supplier.

He claims 7 day money back refund, and says he is giving the same deal for the "specials" we are getting for ~$129. Get yours ordered before they are gone!
Now I need another 210 to go with it!
Me too! Anyone know where we can get a 210V for $50?
