I've got a Powerlab 8 as well and the Protek super pro 1000 power supply. You can charge single batteries very fast and safe. Or you can buy their MPA board and charge up to 8s and balance as well. This is a top notch charger and the customer service is awesome!!

ac/dc is awesome

orions new charger looks really amazing!

one of the best values imho would be the duratrax 235 (balances and charges up to 4s and 8amps)

these are all for single packs.

the hitec x4 is a charger i see alot at the track too for multi-chargers

That Orion charger is a overpriced pos, its only a 50w. The best bang for the buck is icharger, most watt per dollar that I've come across. Don't be scared away by DC only chargers, its simple cheap and easy to make your own power supply. Using a computer or server supply. Realistically speaking for doing a single battery charge you don't need any more than a 300w charger, to do some very quick charging.

Amazing how old threads can still be completely relevant for those of us browsing, who may not have otherwise seen it, isn't it?
