Default Got new batteries, Now I need to upgrade my charger

Hey guys, I just purchased new batteries for my HPI E-Firestorm. I got Peak Racing Power Max Pro 3300mAh Ni-MH batteries. I was wondering what type of charger I will need. I thought my old charger would do it, but its only rated for 1700mAh. Can anyone suggest a something decent thats not too too expensive. Thanks.

If you are only going to charge Nimh's and don't plan on every getting into Lipo's, etc - You might want to look up the Dymond Super Smart Charger or "Super Nova" chargers..

They are great chargers, you can pick them up dirt cheap..

Well I ended up getting a DURATRAX INTELLIPEAK DIGITAL CHARGER DTXP4130 . It was used 4-5 times and got a pretty good deal on it. Anyhow can someone fill me in on some of the do's and don'ts about my batteries. I want to be charging them right and storing them correctly too. Any help you can provide me would be great. Thanks..
