Default What charger included with Backdraft 8E?

What charger is included with the Backdraft 8E? Can it charge both lipos at once or only one at a time? Pics?

This one maybe?

No it actually comes with a trickle charger that takes i think 4 hours. And im not sure if its one or both at a time. Its still a great deal even if you have to buy a charger.

Here are the specs on the charger

2S/3S Balanced Lipo Charger
Input: AC 100-240V
Output: 0.75A
Charging: Red Light On
Charging Complete: Green Light On
No Charging: Power Light On only

It charges ar 750mAh so divide the mAh of the battery by 750mAh and you have your charging time. It only charged 1 lipo at a time.

I just used this charger and charged the first one in just over 2 hours and the other was the same amount of time. These were right out of the box. Nice compact charger.

Any pictures of the charger?
Do the lipos need to be charged on a balance charger everytime? I have an MRC977 which can supposedly charge lipos but there is no balance connector so Im not sure if you are supposed to just use the regular connection or not. Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks

Ordered the aftershock 8E Corr truck from RctoysNH.com, can't wait to let it rip. I wonder if the spur gear will hold up? beatyourtruck.com

It is plastic, that might prove a problem with 1/8 scale brushless power. I hope I am wrong.

For now they are just going to come with the 27mHz am radios. I think some time in they might have the 2.4 radios in them but I am not positive. I will work on getting some pics of the charger up here for you to see
