Default Charger recomendations

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a charger that can handle 12 nimh cells and has the adjustable peak setting.

Duratrax ICE. To properly peak charge 12 cell I believe you'll need a 15v power supply. I may be wrong, but to peak a pak @14.4v your charger needs to see or exceed that amount. Maybe someone can confirm this. My Millenium Pro said this in the directions I think.

As far as i am aware you can run a charger charging up to 30 cells on a 12v power supply, if you check out this website you'll see a couple of 12v chargers that charge up to 30 cells.
