The cool thing about Fukus is that they're awesome. The bad thing about them is that, in my area, everyone knows about them and runs them.

You'll get many opinions on this, but basically, a good charger need this: linear charge, adjustable peak detection cut off, at least 6 amps charge rate and the option of disabling trickle charge.

One of the cheapest, yet good quality, which meet these requirements, is the LRP Pulsar Sport / Nosram Sirius. It's possible to find them at 100$.

In the mid range - most for money / value for money - is the Eagle / Integy CDC v6. This is around 170$.

If price dont matter: CE 35 GFX or Futaba CDR 5000. 400$ +.

Everything is great here bud. I hear you're still ripping the track up. Keep it up.

Lowner_V1S - Everything that Cole Trickle is dead on. Another two possibilites to add for chargers is the new Pitbull X3 (contact Daniel, he can get you one!) and the reedy quasar pro (which is very similiar to the Integy charger) It all depends on what your budget is. Ask away if you have any other questions. I currently have a CE GFX and it a great charger to charge Fukuyama cells. Competition Electronics sets the standard for RC cells.

Eagle V6 is a great charger. IMO the rayspeed discharger is the best tray. I use one and love it. I use the 30 amp discharge primarily on my GFX between rounds of racing though. I always use the rayspeed before my first charge. It's great not having to baby sit it. Though I need a new fan now.
