Default Charger for Li-Fe receiver pack

Just bought 2 Epic life 220 mah 6.6v cells. Looking for a charger unless my exsisting chargers will work.

I have the following chargers.

1.Celectra 1-3 cells Li-po receiver pack charger Eflite.

2.Bantam BC6 charger.

Hoping one of these will do the job.

most current model lipo chargers cater for life batteries just browse through the manual or charger menu.

you can charge life packs on lipo mode,we've been doing for almost a year now with zero problems,life cells are alot more durable than lipo cells
as soon as you turn on receiver pack the nominal voltage comes down some and stays there the whole 8 minutes in 12th scale and if oval 4 minutes with good voltage to servo's thru entire run.
but you can get a small life charger pretty cheap from amain like a few mentioned
