Default Charger for NiHM batteries?

Hey guys, my charger just broke. Ive been looking at the duratrax 200 which i heard is a pretty good charger. Does anyone know any chargers that are cheaper than the duratrax and just preform as good. The duratrax is $40..Thanks

i dont think you are going to find any decent charger much under $40. The duratrax is a decent charger or go to hobbypartz.com and take a look at there chargers. The thunder AC6 is a good charger that will do all nicad, nimh, and lipo batteries. $43 with Free shipping.

and you'll be set when you wanna upgrade to lipo. i've had one for about a year and it works great. then just grab a female deans to male traxxas adapter or learn to solder
