hand-held is portable & light.

but i finally settled on a starterbox for ease of using. just plonk your car down ... push .. all ready to go.
also, it's very convenient when you need to break-in .21 size engine or any other new & tight engines.
but damn, it's heavy, esp if you use those 12v gel lead acid batts.
also it's ard 2X the price of the former.
note that there are starterboxes for 1/10 as well as 1/8 so choose wisely. some use 550 motors, others use those big motors (same as hand-held ons).

i use handstarter since the very start. When you decide to bring a few cars out to play, you will appreciate the ease of just using 1 starter for all your cars. Starter box is more convenient, but imagine bringing 4 boxes for 4 different cars.

Default Charge Handheld start???

hand held and box starter themsilf don't come with batt. need to purchase separately. to charge the batt you can bring down to any of the shop or Motorbike shop. they may charge them for you.
see what kind of batt you are having. or get a charger.
