Default Chargers

What are some of the better chargers out there? What is everyone using? Need some good advise before I go and buy one...

Thanks

I use the accucycle Elite and love it...the Triton is nice... as are MANY others


depends on what types of batteries you will be charging and for what applications

I use the Hanger 9 Double Vision. It works great for charging your tx and rx at the same time - in about 15 min. It can also charge your glow ignitor.

I went with the 'Electricfly peak 400'. Its small , has a fuse for overloading , has three charge currents,and charges 1-10 cell batteries which is very important. I have two other chargers but I dont use them because they basically are timed chargers which means if I push the start button to charge without a battery connected it will act as if its charging.

if you don't mind a dc charger, the triton is really hard to beat. There's not much it won't do.

I bought the Quick Field Charger MKII for budget reason.
I'm very pleased with it.


If budget was not a trouble I had bought the triton like Chris said.

I got a SuperBrain 969 Pro charger first... has two independent outputs to charge two packs at once, up to 8cells and 4.5A each. Can discharge on one of the outputs. Comes with 12V 5A AC/DC converter. Won't do LiPos, though.
I got a Triton charger now to do LiPos. Also does everything else. The Triton has a step-up DC-DC converter built in, so it can charge up to 18 cells off of a 12V supply, and up to 24 cells off of a 15V supply! Does a great job charging LiPos. Only has one output and does not come with an AC/DC converter.
