Pretty impressive. Depending on pricing, it'll be a very strong competitor to the PL8 and 300 series iChargers. For those with high cell count (>10S) lipolys, it will get a LOT of attention. Finally, another 1000W charger in the marketplace.

I'm sure that there are some unnamed testers out there right now kicking the tires on them.

Odd that a trade rag would spill the beans on them before any announcement from TP.

Seems odd to be promoting a 14S charger to the car crowd? The existing TP-820CD is far better suited to that market.

I agree that a 14S/30A charger will generate lots of interest from the big plane/big heli/big EDF fans typically running 12S and 14S setups. From user reports even the latest 820CD firmware still has problems so it will be interesting to see whether they fix those before releasing this new 1430C or simply roll it to the early adopters to flush out the bugs.

Price and availability are the two bug unknowns here. It is going up against the Hyperion EOS 1420i which although only 550W, is a mature and reliable product with excellent PC integration.
