Default Charger

Hi,
I race nitro but would like a good reliable charger. I would prefer one that can plug into the wall at my house as well. Has anyone heard of the Super Brain 989, i think it is made by MRC. Is it any good? any other suggestions? thanks in advance.
Joe

If you want AC/DC, your choices are very slim. You would be much better off to pick up a cheap power supply of ebay and get a DC charger.

this may sound like a dumb question, but how do you charge the power supply?

a power supply is some thing that converts the power from ac 240v (that is what it is in Australia dont know about the us) to dc 12v because 240v would kill the circuits. It is the same in a pc and laptop power pack.

This will widen your choices of chargers

Get something like this, and then you can get any DC charger.
