If the tray connection is based on AS150s, it'll be fine. The resistor tip connectors basically last forever in my experience.

I know he wanted to make a Specter-like mod but I think it's about time for XLP to discontinue the 520 (Logo 480Xtreme copy) and release a true 550 with a quick release battery tray. No more velcro fasteners please !

There are a couple new ISDT chargers that I just noticed at ProgressiveRC. These are AC powered.

Here is the ISDT X16. $629 at ProgressiveRC.com.
https://www.progressiverc.com/collec...ducts/isdt-x16






A true revolution in charging, the X16 from ISDT is a self-contained powerhouse. At a total of 2200W maximum charging power, the X16 offers by far the highest output of any AC-powered charger available on the market.

As future-proofed as a charger can be, the X16 supports lithium batteries of up to 16S, can charge up to 4.45V per cell, and can be fully operated from your phone or other device via Bluetooth using the isdGO app.

The two channels of the charger are completely independent and each capable of up to 1100W of output - but if that isn't enough for you, you can combine them in parallel for a maximum individual output of 1800W, at a rate of up 35A.

The built-in power supplies accept universal AC voltage between 100-240V AC with no modification required, so wherever you go, the X16 will be ready to get to work.


There is a cheaper one too, the K4, at $225. It can be powered via AC or DC.
https://www.progressiverc.com/collec...oducts/isdt-k4








ISDT continues their line of affordable dual-channel chargers with the K series, which accepts AC or DC input - with a unique connection design to ensure that you can't accidentally connect both inputs at the same time.

The K4 offers 400W of charge power per channel when running on AC power, or up to 600W per channel with a DC power source. Charge at up to 20A per channel, or put the two channels in parallel to increase the output.

The latest version of the scOS offers handy features like an adjustable DC output mode, enabling you to control the output voltage and current up to 150W. There's also a battery destroy feature for safe discharging and disposal of old packs, and even dark mode for the display!

The price isn't all that great, but the capabilities of this charger are pretty incredible to be able to buy one piece and it's set to go. Built in power supply. This is like buying a charger case to me. This thing does everything my charger case is capable of and that cost quite a bit more.

The K4 is just over 1/3 the price at $225. It’ll charge 2x 6S at over 15A. That’s 2 5000mAh packs at 3C! More than enough for me, I don’t like parallel charging large packs, they don’t balance well.

You would need two K4 chargers to have similar charging capability as the x16. Each channel will charge a 12s pack, no parallel charging. And no need to have two plugs on the ESC or break apart the 12s pack into two 6s packs for charging. If you fly 700s this seems like the way to go.

ISDT X16

20A 2|1100W 2 (@220V AC)
800W x2(@110V AC)

Though, the current limit of 20A means ~500w max into a 6s pack.

With that wattage and an AC supply built in, I wouldn't be surprised if they do.
