Default Charger for DX3R

Hi guys, I have a DX3R with standard AA rechargeable Nimh batteries. What brand wall charger works with the connector on the DX3R?

Thanks.

Radio should have come with a wall charger

Doesnt need to be anything special (6v @ 200mah or so)

If you have a multi-chemistry charger you can use it, you just need the correct adapter

Grab some Sanyo Eneloop LSD (Low Self Discharge) Nimh cells

Cheers

This does not come with a charger since it is intended to use alkaline AA batteries.

I have rechargable AAs but use an external fast charger I purchased from Radio Shack. It takes about 2 hours to fully charge my 2,200mah batteries. I also use an Eveready charger but that one takes about 6 to 8 hours.

You can use the trickle charger that Spektrum sells for their DX6i for an overnight charge without removing the batteries from the radio.
