    Onyx, 235 i believe, does both. Charges about anything you could ever want to charge.

    thats like asking a kid what they want for dinner, the answer is always pizza or icecream.

    There are several on the market to choose from. Traxxas has one, venom has a few, Onyx, duratrax......

    I have used the Onyx 245 and it was a good enough charger but left something to be desired. I now have a Venom and aside from the customer service being out of this world, I like the features on the charger. See, my opionion.

    You're going to spend around 80-90$ for a nice one. anything less will have less features.

    CAUTION: some chargers do not come with the power supply! Make sure you get the one that does.

    Happy hunting, thats the fun part

    There are some good ones out there for $80-125 & up. Spend a little more now for a quality charger, it does make a difference. These are the 2 budget friendly ones ive used: Dynamite Passport Ultra, 100W @ 8A & Racer's Edge Surecharge 2010, 100W @ 8A. I have since moved up to a Powerlab-6 with external 600W PSU @ 40A. This one will take care of all my needs for a very long time.

    Hitec X4 multi-charger. Will charge 4 batteries at a time.... Lipo, nihm, life... any of them. Settings to balance, fast charge, discharge and store. It's a little on the expensive side but worth every penny when I can have 4 batteries ready to rock at any time. Also peace of mind knowing that I have a good quality product. I'm a firm believer that you always "get what you pay for"
    uh oh.... that didn't sound good
