This works on receiver packs and can charge 2 packs at once.

I use this one, and it does two at a time. Charges, Discharges and Cycles NiCd, NiMH (1-10 cells) and Lithium-based battery packs (1-3 cells).

Check out the local hobby shop.

Just about every basic RC charger now days will be able to charge a receiver pack.

I use a superbrain 977 and a hyperion 606. I like the superbrain because it will charge 2 different batteries at the same time, but I think the hyperion does a better job and it will balance charge a lipo, cycle nimh/ nicad and its fully adjustable. The auto cycle function is important to keep your packs at their peak performance.

thats weird that is says the superbrain 977 doesnt charge Li-po. i wonder when they changed that. i got an older used one on ebay and it does 1-3 cell lipo.

How much were you looking to spend? The most basic chargers will be fine for just a Rx pack.

This is one of the best chargers on the market it can charge 2 batteries at one time with no problem .

It might have the same looking type of chassis as others but the electronics are state of the Art no chinese flee market components in this unit All name brand components .

This is a complete idiot proof unit that charges all types even the new lifepo4 .its stable 0.1- 5 amp charge is perfect to protect those valuable cells.one complete travel slim line unit with ac and dc.complete with a state of the art built in balancer for your lipo's that does work .lol

comes complete with every lead known to man in the rc industry and packed in a limited edition box

Remember cells that are charge at high amp levels also dont have a long life cycle.This is a charger that will not only protect your batteries and your money pocket but will also protect you from misuse.This charger will not allow you to make mistakes fullstop

In the specs it doesn't state so.
