Plus I can configure into a case to make my setup portable. The ISDT is only 160W and while it can output 27V DC, max amperage output is only 7.4. wish I understood all this before I purchased it.
If you ever want a bigger PSU and have no idea about it (and I don't want to electrocute yourself) then just have Lipo Connection Solutions make you one. He's a member on here that custom makes PSUs. I had a bunch of stupid questions (lol) and concerns and he answered them all for me and I ordered a custom 750W PSU for $50!

My goal was similar to yours, 10x4S just 1300mah but I wanted to be able to get around 26amps and sustain voltage so that the ISDT would not shut off (damn 11.6v cutoff). I got exactly what I wanted.

So far it's been working I just really hope that my charger doesn't die like I've seen some report

Hi,
anyone managed to put on the protective cover without bubbles?
I was not, got crazy.
As I was not able to put on the protective covers on SC-608, 620 and Q6 (donno, guess have only protective covers for three of the four ISDT charger types I own).

Anyway, T8 is very nice, but the selection button is not good IMO. Like the way of 620 and 608 much more than the way of T8 and Q6. Unfortunately 620 (have 2) and 608 (have 3) are not produced anymore. The "more" perfect chargers IMO, compared to (very good) T8 and Q6.

Hi,

I'm in the same boat regarding the protective covers. I tried several times and I also cleaned the covers with alcohol before puting the protection but I always get bubbles.

Regarding the selection button, till now I did not faced any problem but I did not used it intensively as this is winter and flights are not frequent.

Regards

yes, i failed with the screen protector as well and ended up ditching it. i sent messages to ISDT both through FB and their website before the holidays and still no reply (sure it'll be longer after the Chinese new year) about buying screen protectors separately.

I bought screen protectors separately, before Banggood included them to the chargers for free. But those are the same, so I did not manage to get the screen protectors I have paid for to put on without bubbles, either. There is no difference.
Still do have several originally packed ISDT protectors here, but meanwhile have given up, because I did not succeed to put on a protector without bubbles.

Actually two (of my three) 608 have screen protectors with bubbles on, all the others (1 x 608, 2 x 620, 1 x Q6, 1 x T8) are without protector. Removed the protector from the T8 again, because it was impossible to get it on pretty. First attempt was "quite ok" (few bubbles), tried to improve, always went worse. The same in the other chargers.
