turnagy charger its 50-60$

smc lipo 5200 24c or 28c or 40c pending on how much power you need

and if you are worried about the lipo blowing up dont get those get the smc they are the shit

if you're on a budget get the 24c they're like 70$ or so

Hyperion, the new Triton and the Racers Edge are all good chargers

Everyone around here runs Orion Lipos and they work great

onyx 230 =70$
blinky =30$

thats a 100$ or you can get the turnagy for 50-60$ and it does it all in one. then get the smc lipos at 75 a piece times 3 = 225$ a total of 285$ and you have equipment thats second to none

I have the old Triton and it's a great charger!
The Triton2 has more charge current... I need to upgrade

However, I believe the Triton2 also needs a power supply... The old Triton does.

the power supply is fine. i just dont know about that one. i use the pyramid and its awsome for 60$ plus it 20 amps and for 10-20$ you can get the 30 amp model the psv300 both are light and easy to transport also you will never run out of power.

thats the charger its hands down the best deal out thier

that other thing idk the esc i use has a cut off built in.

other then the p/s, charger and batts just get a lipo sack just in case.
