Default Newbie looking for a chager....

So I am very new to this hobby and just bought my first buggy that comes with 2 lipo batteries. THe charger that came with it is really cheap and slow, so I want to buy something that can charge thebatteries in less then 2 hours. I wenton hobbykigs website and I sawall kinds of chargers, what are peoples thoughts on theTurnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ accessories or the IMAX B6 Charger/Discharger 1-6 Cells (GENUINE). They seem to be very well priced, do they work well or should Ibe looking at something else?
Thanks

Those are both great entry level chargers for lipos and a lot better than the stock type chargers. If you don't have large batteries then those will serve you well for a long time.

Okay thanks for the reply, I just have to see who to buy it from.  Hobbyking price is good but the shipping is slow, and there is nothing local under $70.  Ebay is also all from china, so it's also slow shipping.

I just found an ecopower electron 65ac for $44.99 with 1.49 shipping (3 weeks). How's that charger?

Never heard of it before , but almost ALL of those chinese chargers and clones are nearly identical. I just happened to get this one. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=17508

That one looks good, and it comes with a outlet so you can plug it into the wall! Now I just have to get it to Canada! 3 Weeks...... out of stock!

Looks good, but the $30 shipping charge, plus customs kills the deal
