Default Charger advise

Hello Getting back into the hobby. I just bought a sc10. I use to race Stadium trucks (rc10t2)in early 90s in high school a lot has changed. I ran the sc10 with a 3s 50c venom battery from my velocity 36 boat and it was intense. I want to get a better charger with a storage option that is built to last and easy to use. I was looking at the Tenergy TB-B or turnigy reactor chargers. What would be the best charger on the market right now for recreational use? and what lipo battery are most using on a sc10 for recreational.. Thanks

I saw an ad on here earlier today for a Hyperion ac/DC charger for 35 shipped I would grab that one. Then grab some hobbyking or smc Lipos about 5000mah 2s

I got one of these Charsoon Antimatter chargers a while back and have been very happy with it, I believe these are the OEM for the Reaktor series from Turnigy, but with the main difference is that the Charsoon version includes an IR meter which is extremely helpful in measuring the health of your cells. Generally most of my cells start around 1mΩ to 3mΩ, but over time the IR goes up and I like to replace my cells when they go above 8mΩ to ensure the best performance.

I find the fastest way to put packs into storage mode is to run them down to LVC set at 3.4V/cell under load which typically averages out to 3.8V/cell at rest... most of the time the packs spend less than a minute to hit storage mode using this technique regardless of the brand of charger.

Best of luck in your decision!
