AC/DC does mean it can plug into house current as well as a 12V source. Typically these are limited to 50 watts per port although the new Hitec chargers allow you to share the overall wattage between the ports which would allow you to charge the higher cell count packs at a higher rate. http://hitecrcd.com/products/chargers/acdc-chargers The DC/DC chargers are to be powered with a 12V car battery or AC power supply. These offer higher wattage like the X2-700 which can handle up to 700 watts per port at up to 30A. http://hitecrcd.com/products/chargers/dcdc-chargers


However, there is a new charger, the D7, which is what I now use exclusively. It's the best of both worlds as it is 2-ports, AC/DC but can handle 200 watts @ 20A per port! More info here: http://hitecrcd.com/products/charger...tation/product
