Default Receiver Battery Charger Suggestion

Hello

I am looking for a receiver battery charger that is cheap but reliable. However, my knowledge to batteries is very limited. I think MRC 820 Super Brain looks good but I am not sure if it charges receiver battery or not. Please give me some advise! Any help will be appreciated!

Thank You

you can also charge on a bench top power supply at 7.5 volts (i know, sounds high but ni-mh's peak at 1.5 volts) dont charge at more than 1 amp though because if you leave them they WILL explode (happened to me)

You can use just about any charger you have to charge a receiver pack. Just keep the charge rate around 1-1.5 amps and you will be fine.
