Default Nimh Charger suggestion

Guys, Thanks for your previous help. I want your suggestion on a NiMH charger. Here are my needs:

1. Should be able to charge 7.2 - 8.4V, 2000 - 5000 mAh, 6 or 7 cell Nimh stick packs and standard receiver packs

2. Should be able to charge atleast 2 batteries at a time

3. Must be able to operate on 230V 50Hz since the use is going to be in India

4. Must be AC/DC type with AC connectors

5. Tamiya style connectors required

6. Glow charger adapter will be a great add on

7. Not worried about LCD display and other frills

Please help as I need to make a decision soon. I checked many brands like venom, dynamite, duratrax etc. All seem to be 110V which wont work in India.

Look at a TEKIN112D charger or the TEKIN 112C.

There are a few chargers that can do two at a time but it's usually at lower current rates. My best advice would be to get a charger that can handle NiCd, NiMH, and LiPo because sooner or later you'll be using LiPo. Also don't worry about it being AC/DC, you won't find one in the states that is 230v/50Hz, just get a nice DC charger and run it off a car battery or pick up a 230v DC transformer when you get to India.
