    I have the onyx 200 charger too. I had the same problem as you, but I wanted lipos. I would look at getting the Traxxas EZ Peak Plus 6amp charger. It's what I got, and I LOVE it. It can charge 6-15 cell nimh/nicd, lipo, life, and even lead acid batteries. It's $100, and it can charge every kind of battery there is. Hope this helps!

    actually,that is the one that I was considering.I got the onyx 200 about 3 months ago along with 2 duratrax 5000mah 7 cell batts and have lost one cell in each of the batts already.just paperweights now.not sure if the batts were junk or the charger is'nt doing a good job.not quite ready for the special care of lipo's yet but I'm sure I will cross that line some day so I do need to get a charger that does it all.guess it's time to spend some more money,lol
