Default Best charger I can get from amazon for $75

So I got the Venom pro 2 charger and it's giving me issues. Keeps saying my pack is low voltage when it works fine on friends charger. I need something ac/dc that will charge 4s packs for my 8ight-e and it needs to come from Amazon. Suggestions? I should have said $75ish

That is only a 50 watt charger, and might not even put out that on AC.
This one is 80 watts, but, again might not put that much out on AC: http://www.amazon.com/B680AC-Dual-Po...attery+charger
Another 80 watt: http://www.amazon.com/Racers-Edge-Mu...attery+charger

It's kind of shady to me that a lot of the ac/dc chargers all look similar just different colors/brands on them.

A lot of rc stuff is this way. for example, Skyrc makes hitec chargers. Lipo batteries are made by a handful of companies supposedly.

The more watts the better. That one should charge a 4s around 6a. The only review said it comes with a European plug so you would need an adapter to plug it in.

Yeah I saw that about the plug but I asked and a few people said theirs came with a us 120 cord recently.
