Default What now?

Hey,
Okay I ordered this charger a few days ago, and it arrived. I unboxed it, but saw that I need a power supply and other stuff. So what do I actually need to start charging my batteries? I have a Venom Power 4200 MaH NiMh. Please, with links, tell me what I need to get for a cheap price.

Thanks

I have basicly the same charger under another name, but I use one of these. I can charge up to 5 amps and thats fast enough for me. You can also get a old computer tower and take the power supply outta it. Searck forums and find out what wires you'll need to use as there about 40 of them leaving the supply in there. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=6256
Youll also need the male end plug that matches what ever you use on your batteries ofcourse. I use Traxxas plugs and ofcourse my charger didnt include one. I just cut one of the charge leads that cam with my charger and soldered one on.

Okay so just buy that thing you linked and then get a plug for the charger and that's it? Where can I get a plug that would fit a 4200 MaH NiMh Venom Power battery?

Yes, you'll need a power supply like the one in that link.

For the connector, it depends on your specific battery - the same pack will often come with one of three connectors, bullet, Deans, or Traxxas. On an older pack, you might still see a Tamiya style plug. If you can post a pic, someone can easily tell you what connector you have.
