I really like the Hobbico AccuCycle Elite......Two batteries at once,(no matter what kind they are) hard to beat that.

Here's a list of my top choices.

Great Planes Triton - Nice charger, very quick to change battery types and charging options
Duratrax Ice - Nice graphical display so you can see exactly whats going on with the battery
Hyperion EOS 5i - Really sharp small charger. Much like the triton but in a smaller box.
Hobbico AccuCycle - I plan on getting one of these to replace my triton. Two batteries at once, and it has the AC built in so you dont need a seperate power supply.

I use this fairly cheap $70 Wattage charge-it-all plus or something like that. Charges Lipos up to 2A, and Nicads and NiMhs too. Best of all, it can plug straight into the wall outlet, or a 12V power source.

Hobbico AccuCycle Elite gets my vote. It charges, discharges, and cycles! plus you can use that temperature thing just in case.
