Default Battery and Charger? What to get?

Ok, First i drive a Ofna 1/8 Nitro Buggy, But i thought you guys would know this question better than anyone.

I am looking for a battery pack to put in the car reciever it takes a 5 cell flat pack. Ofna makes one 1400Mah i can get for $20.


Now i need a charger to charge my batteries....
I would like it to show the charge in some way, and by versitile to charge about any battery i will need can you guys show me where to start?

I dont want to much but i want the best bang for buck!

I use a hobbico quick field charger. I can charge two batts at the same time (rx/rx,tx.tx, or rx/tx). It can do nicads, nimh, or lithium ions.
Can be powered by power supply, 12v battery or the 12v in a starter box.
It does not show how much voltage a pack has but with nimh you can charge them from any state of discharge safely.
