Default JR Batteries - Best charger analyzer, conditioner

I'm looking for the best way to maintain all my batteries. I run with all JR in my transmitters and also in my planes. I'm kind of new at this, and have just been charging them with the supplied charges that came with the radios. Please let me know what I should be doing, and also the best charger to do it with.

Thanks so much

There is a lot of good information in the "batteries and chargers" forum. I am relatively new and use it frequently. One thing that is something you can count on, the supplied chargers will continue to overcharge your batteries and eventually harm their reliability. Or so I have been told.

There are good ones out there and as many opinions to match. I just happen to use the AccuCyle charger/recycler. There are many others probably much better, but this is the one that I use.

I have a Dymond Super Turbo and love it. Check it out. Also the new Triton from Great Planes looks real good. It will do Lithium Ion and Lead Acid as well. The Triton looks to be only a few bucks more, but I have not heard much from the users yet. The Dymond is proven. I'd take a chance and look closely at the Triton if you think you might want to use Lithiums in the future.

That's what I was going to ask, I was looking at an Accu Cycle, and it seems to be pretty good. Just wondering what the thoughts were.

Thanks,

I have all Ace equipment. I've been very happy with the units.
