You could always buy a 12 volt power supply for about 30-40 bucks. Walmart has car jump starters with 12 volt outlets for 40 bucks. Plug it into the wall, let it charge overnight, and then charge your batts whenever.

After the charger that came with my RTF plane died, I bought a Duratrax piranha digital peak charger for about $60. It charges from AC outlets or connects to your car battery. It charges NiCD and NiMH batteries and lets you change lots of settings. I like it and think it is a good investment.

For the cost of one or two packs for your plane, one of these power packs can
recharge you packs by running your DC charger. Yyou can carry them on a bike,
or the lighter ones could be carried in a back-pack with the rest of your field equipment.

They are simple to use. It is just like using your car's cig lighter plug or
clips on the car's battery. You a 12 volt DC charger and charge your
batteries at the field. They can also
be used at the house so you don't need a DC and an AC charger. I use one in my
shop for that purpose.

Here is the one that sears sells:

Target sells this one:

If there is no plug for your plane's battery charger and it doesn't have
clips, adding plug a port to one of these packs would involve an adapter like
this. Easy

I am able to bring my car to the field so I don't need this for field
charging, but I use one of the larger jumper packs, similar to this one, in my
shop to power my 12V chargers. I actually used it the other day to jump start
my neighbor's car. It is cheaper and more versatile than an AC/DC charger or a
12 V power supply that would need to be plugged in.
