I don't think you can, you might want to try Toys'r us or tower hobbies, I thought I saw just the charger at toys are us. Now if you want a quick charger like 15 minute charger you can plug into your car or the wall we have those but there any where from $30 to $130. You might want to check Tower you might be able to get the 4 hour plug by itself.

Just out of curiosity, isn't 9.6v too much for a receiver? I know most receiver packs I've seen are 6.0v. Just lookin' out...

8 x 1.5 = 12, 9.6 will show low if you have a readout on the tranmitter, i have a jr radio w/display that will beep then the volage goes to 9.6, it would drive me crazy, same with the spektrum.

Default RE: wall charger

actually i was planning on using it for my transmitter, i read on a previous thread that a 9.6v would work since technically the transmitter doesnt need 12volts , supposedly its not just adding up the 8 1.5volts it has to do with wiring or some other junk, (what i read).So i have 2 9.6v packs i got for cheap, but the batteries came uncharged and all the chargers i own wont work and radioshack sells only the pack and charger combo. The battery fits exactly where the battery tray was and i can still close the bottom so if it turns out these packs work then it will be extremely convenient, but my problem is im clueless about batteries and chargers so i have no clue as to what type of wall charger id need, my batteries have large connectors than the tiny hump pack cells

i think that radio's designed for rechargables, like the ones i have for planes that come with the pack were made for 9.6volts and show 100% when charged. I tried to use the rechargables in my jr system and it was beeping with fully charged batteries, i would reccomend sticking with alkaline batteries, also i see a difference with the 4 pack plane reciever batteries and the 6v 5 pack batteries. the servo's move much better with the 5 pack cells than the 4 pack, there is no resistance with the planes but there is with the cars. Just my opinion but i would stick to the alkaline, they last a long time, not like the reciever packs.

the reason it cost $40 is because it is a peak charger which is alot better than a trickle charger and if you buy the battery charger combo at radioshack the charger is probably some cheap trickle charger

I have this charger, it will charge everything including lipo's, 9v 7.2 w/tamiya connectors and rechargable reciever packs:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXLCJ6&P=ML

it would be a good idea to get this too: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXL332&P=M so you can charge the reciever packs, you can charge 2 batteries at the same time.
