Maybe if you don't mind 2nd hand stuff,maybe you could look up the sell/ buy tread or ebay.For that money,maybe you can get something reasonably good.

Definately check ebay for chargers like a Novak Millenium. You can find them all day long used for the price range you are in.

Like the others said, if you don't mind getting used stuff, check Ebay, look for a NOVAK MILLENIUM.

Or if you're willing to spend more look at the Duratrax ICE. Lots of people like it and it's comparable to a high end charger (only bad thing is the discharge rate, 10A...).
