Default Duratrax IntelliPeak ICE Charger help please!

Ive been using the Duratrax IntelliPeak ICE Charger and its a great charger but a bit to complicated for me. A guy I used to race with a bit used to set it up for me but haven't seen him in awhile so I need to learn how to use it so heres my 2 questions

1. Is there a replacement for the plugs? I dont always want to charge off of a car battery but rather an outlet

2. I have a 6V IB1600MaH 5 Cell NiMH battery for my receiver pack and need to set up a charging set for it....can anyone point me towards the correct set up please?

THANKS!!

You can't just plug the charger into the wall, it requires DC current, not AC. You'll need a power supply supplying 15amps, but can get by with most needs with a 12amp supply. I run mine with a 12a supply.

You really need a manual, especially if you don't understand how to select items or navigate around on the Ice. For rcvr batteries, you shouldn't charge these at more than 1amp - these small cells get too hot and charged at higher charge rates, you won't get much life from them. I charge mine at 0.5amps unless I'm in a hurry and then at 1amp. Use a sensitivity of 5mv/cell. Set the discharge current same as the charge current, set discharge volts as 0.9volts/cell. I don't use the temp probe, its not very accurate in measuring the internal cell temp from the outside, but if you do, set low at something like 115F.
