I think you meant to say it's a DC charger. If you don't plan on using your car battery as a power source, there are a number of places from which you can get 12V AC to DC power supplies. You might be better off though buying a charger than can use either AC or DC, they cost more but might be cheaper than the cost of the charge and an AC-DC power source.

Thank you for the reply I thought the chargers that used a car battery were AC? I can never remember which is which this will be my first lipo set up but I would prefer a charger that plugged into the wall I dont have a car of my own..... and I need to be able to keep an eye on my battery while charging I've been avoiding using this type of battery like it has th F-ing plague for a while now but It's inevitable that I use one now which sucks I like nice predictible NIMH batteries I know three people who have lost their house because of lipo fires
