Curious about this also. Online reports seem to suggest that, when it works, this is a great charger, but build quality and longevity are lacking. Some also commented that many of the 'included' cables and adapters were missing...

This little thing is working well... numbers match my orion. time will tell how long this thing lives......but for now ......."Its Alive"....... needed a duo charger that was small to fit in my box. I will update on usage/life
interface is smooth and easy to use. I like the orion a little bit better(used to it) but this works amazing too.

Looking to get a T240, is it still holding up ? Any better options price wise vs durability ? Really like the dual version's better doing so many battery sets, Also looking at 4 ports is the price jump from 130 to 240 a must or are the 130$ range models good like the HTRC B6 80W model ?

consider the pocket chargers, can normally get two high powered ones for the price of one low power dual. pocket chargers are becoming the norm at the track now, cheaper, tiny and pack some serious power...
big old school duals are just not a good investement now.

junsi x6 or x8 for higher end pure power

Mid range IDST like the q6 pro, t6 or t8
also the skyrc b6 nano

Personally im not a fan of spektrum(thier radios are horrible) but they do have one or two that look to be made by IDST

The idst chargers are most popular, early release issues with the t8 but they've been fixed.

And yes they are DC but just buy a cheap power server supply off banggood (personally id go for 24v or what i did and use two 12v in series) then you can run 24v/12v lights, use usb stuff etc.

I've got a small pocket charger, iCharger, a bunch of chargers really, but still like my T240 the best for everyday simple charging. Just pull it out, plug it in and go. I did have one with a screen that went out though.

as far as small chargers go, I really have been liking the SkyRC D100 V2 AC/DC 2 x 100W Dual LiPo Balance Charger for $100.
Charges my phone, my controller, my lipos, powers my pit light and its small.
Its been running like a champ for me.
The fan does tend to run a lot when im doing a lot of charging or discharging, but that can only be heard in the silence of the house. hah
