Duratrax Ice is probably your best bet as long as you have a 12v car battery or power supply. Other wise check out the MRC/Academy Superbrain 977.



XRC has big article about the current crop of the Lipo chargers.

I just bought this one. I'm very happy with it so far.

I got it at the LHS for $85.99. Look around and you might find a good deal on line. It comes with the old tamiya plug and several connectors, but you can buy or make any you need. I have. I know there is much higher end ones out there. But I don't race anymore, mostly bash. I just wanted one charger that could do all the batteries I have accumulated without breaking the wallet.

ICE is hands down the best bang for your buck charger. You can find them for around $120 but you still need a power supply to run it.

Look up Ripmax. They have a nice Lipo charger (I think it does NiMh too) for $65.
