Default Which Charger?

Hi guys, I am looking for a AC / DC Dual battery charger which will charge my Li Po 5000maH 6S 20C battery. I would like to be able to charge, discharge, and trickle charge this battery as well as my Ni MHi Tx (8 cell) and Rx (4 cell) batteries as well. Any suggestions?

Thanx, Mark

I use this one with a converted PC power supply.

You can also use an old laptop power supply.

I used this site to convert mine. Took about 20 minutes for the first one, then about 10 minutes by the 4th one.

These make it easy to drill in sheet metal.
