Default Whats a good lipo charger/balancer for my efirestorm?

Im using a 2s 4700mah 20c lipoly. What charger/balancer would you recommend? I need one that I can plug on the wall. BTW, im in asia & we use 220V, you guys use 110V. Does your charger /balancer have auto volt detector? or I can manually swith it to 220V? where can i buy?

This is the only AC/DC Charger we carry.
http://www.maxamps.com/EOS0606i-AC-DC.htm it will charge your pack and it will work with your voltage.

Best regards,

What are the hard case lipo packs? Whats the difference compared to standard lipo? I've noticed the are rated 30C or more. Can this mean more power? Can my efirestorm flux brushless motor & esc handle that kind of power? With the 20c im using rignt now is already making my rc make wheelies all over the place. Its also taking me around 4 hrs to charge using NOVATEC charger. Thats why im looking for a replacement charger.

Hard cased packs were done for racers. If your not racing don't worry about them. As for the C rating it means the pack can handle a higher amp draw. But in a set-up like yours a higher c rated pack will run cooler and more efficient. And with that charger your charge times should be around 80 to 90 minutes.
