Default Charger suggestions

Been in hobby for a long time. Backyard tracks and bashing. Just got an 8 e 2.0 and I am going to race at a local track. I also plan on picking up a 2wd buggy leaning towards rb6 or 210v2. Just had a baby so limited on $ so I plan on running two 2s batteries in series. So i need a dual charger that's the best bang for the buck! $120 is my budget.

I've been leaning towards this one

any thoughts

hmm that is a tough one.. dual output
just my opinion
1/8 scale electric buggy and then a 1/10 buggy
using a 200 watt max charger for a 5000 mah batttery... that charger is dc from what i see in the description. do you already have a ac to dc power supply unit?
if so id save up a few extra bucks and get the 206 or 208 from icharger and thump on the batteries at more then 1c charge rate

I have this one and it charges lipo's very good. The 100w limit prevents 4S lipo's to charge at 10A but with 2 channel 2S it will.
The only problem for real racers is that it cannot charge 4.22v per cell, only 4.20

The sound quality of the speakers is poor but s a nice feature.
