If you want a decent and reliable charger, grab yourself a swallow 2, it can be powered by a 12v or 240v power source so it can be used anywhere, and it will also charge almost any rc related battery. They average around $120.

I second that the swallow 2 is one of the best in that price range

I got myself a LRP Power Converter so I can use my charger at the track or out bashing somewhere and when at home I can just hook it up to the converter and use it off a household power point

the cheapo way is buying a used/new ATX computer powersupply off ebay. its then a simply a matter of shorting out 2 wires, and grouping all the +12v and ground wires. then you got a 20-30 amp supply for about 30 bucks. very stable current and is reasonably easy. google it. this is only if you want a cheapo solution. some tracks will not allow the use of these, but ive made 5 and all have been safe and sold to friends... u just gotta be carefull. esp when the capacitors inside can stop your heart if touched.

one is attached that i made. notice the bulb, installed on the 5v rail. this boosts it up past 12v. and is easy to tell when its on...
