Everything is good, and I would suggest you look into the Hyperion charger that maxamps sells. I believe it is $160 and has 120V plug. For $260 you can charge 2 packs at a time. This is a great charger. The name is something like EOS6060es??

The ICE runs on 12v DC power, power coming from your wall outlet is 120v AC/DC. Therefore you need a 11-13v DC power supply to convert the wall power to 12v DC. You can get them at radioshack for $86 (the 15watt 13.8v one). Its plug and play right into the ICE.

The hyperion has a built in power supply. I'm not so sure starting off with a dual battery charger just yet. This is all you need to charge basically any practical battery out there- http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/18361

I thought having the two trucks it would better to have access in charging two at the same time....
