Default Looking for better AC/DC charger

I want to upgrade to a better charger that will charge 2 batteries at once. I currently have a Prophet, but its a stretch to keep enough batteries charged for a 1/10 ST and a mini-t. With my new 2x battery MT there's just no way. I'll be spending all my play time waiting for batteries to finish cooking.

Is there something out there that will charge two 6 cell stick packs at once and still let me charge my mini packs safely? Lipo capability not absolutely necessary since I only have NiMh right now, but that might be a nice option.

Also, is there a book, article or something that will tell me how / how long / what amp setting to charge different types of batteries so I don't overcook my soon to be larger collection of batteries? I've spent a ton on 3300mah NiMh packs and I would like to keep them... I may want to do other types in the future though.

An MRC 977 will do them. A good rule of thumb is to charge all NI batts at 1c-2c and let the charger shut off automatically.

1c takes an hr, 2c takes 30 minutes.
