This works on receiver packs and can charge 2 packs at once.

I use this one, and it does two at a time. Charges, Discharges and Cycles NiCd, NiMH (1-10 cells) and Lithium-based battery packs (1-3 cells).

Check out the local hobby shop.

Just about every basic RC charger now days will be able to charge a receiver pack.

I use a superbrain 977 and a hyperion 606. I like the superbrain because it will charge 2 different batteries at the same time, but I think the hyperion does a better job and it will balance charge a lipo, cycle nimh/ nicad and its fully adjustable. The auto cycle function is important to keep your packs at their peak performance.

thats weird that is says the superbrain 977 doesnt charge Li-po. i wonder when they changed that. i got an older used one on ebay and it does 1-3 cell lipo.

How much were you looking to spend? The most basic chargers will be fine for just a Rx pack.

This is one of the best chargers on the market it can charge 2 batteries at one time with no problem .

It might have the same looking type of chassis as others but the electronics are state of the Art no chinese flee market components in this unit All name brand components .

This is a complete idiot proof unit that charges all types even the new lifepo4 .its stable 0.1- 5 amp charge is perfect to protect those valuable cells.one complete travel slim line unit with ac and dc.complete with a state of the art built in balancer for your lipo's that does work .lol

comes complete with every lead known to man in the rc industry and packed in a limited edition box

Remember cells that are charge at high amp levels also dont have a long life cycle.This is a charger that will not only protect your batteries and your money pocket but will also protect you from misuse.This charger will not allow you to make mistakes fullstop
