Default Lipo NiMh Chargers

Looking to get a NiMH and Lipo charger combination with 2 charging ports. Any recommendations for any that are good and reliable that come as a complete set?

Seen alot of guys using this one. I'd guess you can find a better price than tower if you look around.

The Onyx is great, plus US built and warrantied for 5 years. It's worth the piece of mind of accountability versus buying from HK. I'm love HK for most stuff, but not where it really matters.

Actually I ran a post on chargers awhile back, and I decided on the Onyx 245. Most places are the same price, but with tower hobbies you can do the easy pay which is nice, and sometimes they have free shipping. Can't go wrong with any of the duratrx line of chargers

Cheers

I use a Cellpro 10XP and like it very much. It is considered a mid-power charger (max 600 watts output compared to the Onxy 245's relatively low max output of 80 watts). Higher power means much faster recharges. A great benefit to have when running at an all day event. However, this charger does require the seperate power supply (which can cost nearly as much as the charger).

A couple nice features for the Cellpro include an auto cycle for Lithium (discharge and then a charge to 40% storage charge level), auto detect for batteries (keeps you from mischarging a battery (i.e. charging a Lipo with a NiMH charge) and computer programmable user presets. Pretty much stupid proof.
