Did you just go out and buy the first thing recommended to you?

I use the Thunder AC6 AC/DC 50watt charger. Goes up to 5amps and includes all sorts of connectors. Even has monitoring USB software and a thermal probe. It charges everything including lead acid, and it has lipo-charge/balance, lipo-charge, lipo-fast-charge, and lipo-storage modes. Sells for $55 on Hobbypartz.com:

I never had a bit of trouble with mine. I even covered mine with carbon fiber stickers to look cool.

Good day!

We would need to know info on the battery you are wanting to charge. How many cells, capacity and how fast you need to charge them?

It says it has a built in AC adapter.

I use this one and have had no problems with it, the fan is a bit loud though.

Why not keep the thunder power charger and get a power supply?
