I think people are confused with cables. Specifically the USB PC Programming cable ($29 did not come with a retail TP1010C) which is used to update the firmware on the retail TP1010C charger. Then the data cable ($10 which did come with a retail TP1010C) used to connect a tp205v or tp210v balancers so they can communicate back to the charger.

I didn't see either the USB PC Programming cable or the balancer data cable in the auction. If the data cable is included, consider it an $10 bonus.

that data cable or the USB Programmer Set? USB Programmer Set is a standard cable. if you have a digital camera or a mp3 player you already own one. i looked last night i have 3 of them that i dont use. even my printer uses the same cable.
why buy something you dont need.

You are wrong. Notice, it's called the USB Programmer Set, which implies multiple components in addition to the USB cable. It also includes a usb to serial converter thingy, then a little ribbon cable to connect to the charger port...

Anyone get their charger yet? I sent him an email and he stated that this charger is not compatible with the TP firmware. Which I would expect.

Well, it's definately a 1010C in sheeps clothing...

Here's a few quick tests I did:
Charge/discharge on a 3S lipo - Good.
Charge/discharge on a 12V PB - Good.
Discharge on NiCd and NiMH - Good.
Charge on NiCd and NiMH - BAD. I just get "[8] Failure OutPut Circuit". It will never start charging.

Anyone else have this problem or did I just get a bad one?

Yep this looks like more than just a USB cable, https://www.rctoys.com/rc-toys-and-...ORS-WIRING.html Would have been nice if a usb camera cable would work but I'm sure TP thought of that when they designed the system to prevent us from doing that

Hope my charger comes today or tomarrow. Still need to order a balancer cable for my 210v.

Just showed up Gotta go to work, will test it out when I get home tonight!

Not so fast guys. I just received mine but can't get to it until next week. Let's see what others report. Besides, there is a 7 day money back guarantee. So, we've got a few days to thoroughly check them out.

As long as it charges what you want to charge and the TP balancer works with it I dont see a problem.

OK, looks like my unit is defective (obviously). He is going to pre-test a new one and send it to me next week. Also says he will cover return shipping...

So far I'm still a relatively happy camper. I'd sure like to see if one of these will take a TP firmware update. The only difference between this and the 1010C is that this unit has more cooling slots on the side where the 12V cables enter.

I did a little checking around, and it looks like this is made by Enerland (http://www.enerland.com). They appear to make equipment and lipos for other people (probably Polyquest and ThunderPower, and maybe others).

My unit has f/w version "7.1". Have no idea where the updater might be found though...
