Default I need a charger! Suggestions?

Must be ac/dc, easy to use, charge my 1/10 scale packs as well as my micro 5 cell packs. Any suggestions? The one I have now is about 15 years old. It has a 15 minute timer and a discharge switch. pretty pathetic.
Thanks.

Integy makes a good line of chargers that would fit your needs and they range in price you could most likely find one in your budget. Ebay allways is a good place to look.

Not really sure. Hard to set a budget for something you don't know much about.
I don't need anything too fancy since it's strictly for bashing, no racing. But i don't want to regret my purchase or wish i bought more than i did. I tend to over buy. Better safe than sorry.

As NiCads are becoming obsolete your gonna need a charger with very accurate peak detection so you don't overcharge your batteries. NiMH's can be damaged very easy due to overcharging. Peak detection is a very important parameter when picking a charger. Team Associated ac/dc "Quasar" and Novak "Ionic" ac/dc charger are both very good chargers with dependable peak detect.
