Default 4000maH non-trickle Charger

I am a newbie to proper RC. I decided to start off with a tt-01 i have all the equipment i need and i decided to buy a 4000mah battery cos the 1600 one that came with the car is a bit weedy. My only problem now is i cant find any details about the charger that came with it and i dont want to undercharge it. I decided that whilst i am looking i may as well get a faster charger too.

What i'm trying to find is a charger that can charge 4000mah quickly, but i don't want to spend any more than 30 but will pay more if necessary. I had a look at a range of chargers but not all were conclusive to a mah charging capacity and its tricky to find these specs. Another thing that i gt stuck at was the 1-2-4amp charge rates of others. Basically whatever you can do to help is appreciated.

so, you want to cahrge quickly. how quickly? a 1-2-4 amp charger can charge a 4000mah battery in an hour. i owuoldn;t suggest going above 5 amps, since it's probably a stick pack, and might blow up if you charge too fast. i suggest if you have a 12v power supply or car battery you get the ansmann X base

or if you don't, the slightly more expensive version that has a mains cable

and then you're sorted
HPI E-Firestorm - Tamiya TA05 racer (carbon chassis, 10.5 brushless etc) - LRP Blast S10 BX - Revo 2.5r truggy conversion (in progress)

Thanks for the quick response. I would buy that xbase deluxe but unfortunately it is on order..

Do you have any alternatives? I was looking at this but was unable to tell what type of connector i would need on the end were i to buy a 12v mains adaptor. Any clues?

Alternatively there is this if that would work then i would be sorted for both power sources.

Thanks again.
