Default Charging 8 cells

I need to charge 8 GP1100s (2/3A NiMH). Something for under 100 dollars preferably. I already have a 12v power supply.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!
Chris

most chargers can charge between 4-10 cells. I take it these are for a mini? You might have to splurge a little more than a hundred bucks. Duratrax ice charger is good, but it might be overkill for your application.

Yeah, they are for my Kyosho Mini Inferno.

The charger I have now is the Dynamite Prophet Plus (4-7 cells). I've been charging my 8-cell packs on it, because I never noticed it was rated for only 4-7 cells. I tried charging half a pack at a time yesterday and got 3-4 minutes more runtime, and a bunch more top end, proving it really can't charge 8 cells.

I'll take a look at the Ice, thanks!

Check the for sale forums and look for a used pulsar or pulsar 2. They are nice chargers. Check tower hobbies and read the specs on it to make sure it'll do what you want.
