Default another "what charger should i use" thread

so ive been looking around and id like to downscale my 720i duo for something a bit more compact for keeping in my toolbox.
my batteries are as follows
Crawler
-3s 5000mah
-4s 4000mah

Basher
-2x 3s 5000mah

I dont NEED 2 ports but it would be nice and i would like to charge the single packs at 2c if possible.
I dont mind charging the 2x 3s batteries on a parallel board but its not ideal

AC/DC is preferred but ive got a couple 12v supplies ready to go.

Current chargers i am looking at are the nano b6 for budget and the skyrc 400w duo for not so budget.

Ill still keep the 720i/24v case i have for when i want to charge every battery in the neighborhood at the same time.

Thanks for any advice!

The Hobbymate d6 duo pro is a new one I tried out and absolutely love the little thing. AC/DC 200 watts in a charger that small, with a wireless charging pad on top for mobile devices. And you can go up to 600 watts with an external power supply.

id normally agree bud couldnít find any with people looking for similar charging needs as to mine and anything within the last couple years.

With a lot of companies going in and out Iím happy to see the stuff still on the market.

Thatís a pretty solid idea. I could easily power both of them with a single 12v hp power supply.
