Default need recommendations for an inexpensive nimh charger

I need a dead simple charger for my 7 year old to use. I don't yet feel comfortable letting him use LiPO's, and he needs his own charger.

Here is the wishlist:

above all else, must be as plug-and-play as possible. Just plug it in, hit start, it beeps when it's done. To this end, actually less is more, feature-wise.

Ideally would be able to charge a 3300 mah 6 cell pack in an hour or so.

AC/DC, and able to provide above charge time on AC power

Price is not the biggest factor here, but obviously less here is more too.

Thanks in advance!
