are you looking for information on a good charger or are you simply looking to purchase one? if your looking for info, try the LRP Pulsar, look it up on the team associated web page.

if your looking to buy one, i suggest you post in the wanted to buy thread.

good luck and happy racing.

Look for: At least 6 amps charge rate, adjustable delta peak cut off, option of disabling trickle and adjustable charge rate. Also at least 20 amps discharge rate.

This Indy is a mid-range charger, which might be the one with most value for money. http://integy.automated-shops.com/cg...26104483501.a0

I'll second this - I have one and is very satisfied. But the other one I suggested, got a built in PS, which keeps the price a little down.

Post LRP Pulsar Sport & Competition Chargers!

I have the LRP Pulsar Sport and the Competition and enjoy them very much. They are what you would call low budget I guess. It is pretty good considering The Sport is around $100.00 and the Competition around $165.00 depending on where you find them. You'll have to buy a SHE Power Supply to plug them in at home though. I ended up with 2 10 amp Eagle Racing SHE's powers from Integy. The She Powers range from $65.00 to $165.00. The 14 amp is what i would have purchased had I known I was getting both chargers. You could run two chargers on one 14 amp SHE power. The charger set up I have works great for me...... It is not what some of the real serious guys have, Mine deosn't even hold a candle to it. Put it this way...I have seen what they've got and have no expirience with some of that awesome equipment!!

If you can find one, a used Pro trak will go for around $250 ish.

You can find Turbo35's for around $225 to $250 used. It will charge nimhs and nicads, discharge at up to 35 amps, run a lathe and break in a motor. The only problem is that you'll need a seperate power supply.

i thought you wanted at least a 4.5-5.0 amp charge rate and with regular use of Ni-MH batts, Delta Peak chargers (chargers that look for a voltage threshold to determine when the charge cycle is complete) are NOT good?

JB.
I think you got everything mixed up again.
Everyone would prefer a 6amp charge rate for stock races (some would use it during mod race too). It gives you tonnes of punch but sacrificing a little on run time.

Delta Peak is a must if you want to charge your cells safely.
All the leading chargers now use this to safely charge your cells.
Its the safest (maybe?) to charge all your cells that way.

Even if you purely race mod and charge at 5 amps; The next generations of cells, will have even higher capasities. And I'll bet they'll accept/need a higher charge rate than 5 amps. Looking back in history, charge rate has increased over time....
