Default Best fast charger for the money?

Im looking to get a new charger, because i dont want to switch over all of my other battery packs and my current charger to deans because my new car only has deans.

So what im looking for is a good value charger that does fast charge (20 to 45 min) and then Trickle or peak or whatever they are called on the new chargers.

Can anyone help me out?

Im probably gonna be buying it off ebay considering my cash flow problem.


maybe somthing like a hobbico 905?

Thanks!

My top 3 chargers.

ICE, Advantage = best value with discharger and motor run in

APS 3 in 1 = best value with RPM checker and motor run in.

Make an adaptor for the plug so you don't have to buy a new charger.

Most new (and decent) chargers these days have alligator clips anyway, so adapters are more or less a moot point, except maybe for transmitters.

Some alligator clips are too big to fit right into a deans slot, like my APS, but I shaved off the first 3 teeth of one side of the clip with a dremel cutting disc. This gives one tip a nice narrow slot that fits perfectly into the Deans, but at the same time the teeth left on the opposing tip still allow it to grip onto wires and stuff.

Default Charger

If looking on ebay, search for Integy. They have a 16x2, and 16x3 that you can find fairly inexpensive (35-50 bucks) any they work well. I found a 16x3 few months ago as I was looking for the AC option. I have used this charger to race with with great results.

The ICE is a good charger,considering your cash flow problems.

The rest like the Advantage,cell master,pit bull are a little more expensive than the ICE.
