with this charger: http://www.southeastrc.com/Items/Std...ookup=OFN10214

Comments PLEASE!! This will be going into a NMT, I'm tired of going through regular batteries like I go through a batch of good cookies(no I'm not fat).

Any other suggestions?

I wouldn't trust that charger to charge anything.

If that's what you have..maybe that's your problem?

Any 5 cell pack from any of the big manufacturers, Trinity, Orion, Peak, etc. will be fine.

Make sure you get a good quality Ni-MH compatible charger, like the Integy, Novak, LRP, or other units. They are much better for your batteries.

Make sure you charge only on Ni-MH mode, and at nothing higher than 1 amp.

I dont have any pack right now. But I don't have the $$ for a nice pack and a good charger.

So what would you suggest starting with nothing?(on a low budget)

You can buy "cheap" reciever packs at your local hobby store for probably around $20. All receiver packs are basically the same, although some do have more capacity than others.

Search around on eBay for a peak detection charger with Ni-MH mode, preferably a Novak, LRP, or Reedy charger, or even an Integy unit. Because you are on a budget, you will probably need to buy a used charger.
