Default Best Value $$$ Peak Charger

I am in the market to purchase a peak charger to top up my Nicads/Nimh prior to flights and I am wondering which one is the best bang for the buck? My biggest flight pack is 3300, and this for reciever batteries only. I am leaning towards the Piranha, but wondering of any other options.

TIA

I think the digital piranha would be a great deal and do a nice job.

Take a look at the Multiplex LN 5014 - small, easy to use and not too expensive.

I second the multiplex ln-5014, I purchased one about 6 weeks ago on the recomendation of Red and this is the best charger I have owned. If There is any chance that you will go lipo in the future, prchase a lipo capable charger now. If there is no chance you will go lipo (Never say never) in the future it is cheaper to purchase a lipo charger now.

Thanks Guys, I am leaning towards the Multiple since it isn't much more than the Piranha. Just need to shop around.

Thanks Again

I bought this charger on Reds recomendation too. Best bang for the buck in RC chargers. There are fancier chargers out there but the price on the multiplex was the deal maker for me.
