    I just bought a duatrax onyx 235 as my second charger and I am really happy with it.
    One shot.....One kill, no exceptions

    Lots of guys up here talk about the Dynamite Passport Ultra. Everybody seems to thinks it's the best bang for the buck.

    I am using the Traxxas Ez-peak. It's fool proof, easy to use, insures you are charging the correct way. Picked it up for 70...can't go wrong.

    I use and like the Radient Ascend Charger it can charge at 6 amps. LiFe, LiPo, NiMh, NiCd.
    $60
    This charger is really easy to use.
    you select your battery type
    than capacity?(MaH rating)
    click enter than hold it down and your charging.

    10 amp iCharger 106: $90ish
    20 amp iCharger 206: $125ish
    Power supply: $12 on up
    ParaBoard: $20ish

    Both of these chargers are very high quality. They can storage charge at the full stated amperage... unlike most that are limited to 2 amps or so for storage charging. They can charge NiMh, NiCd, Lead-Acid, LiFe, LiOn, LiPo, ect.

    I personally use an iCharger 206... with a power supply and a paraboard. This allows me to charge up to 6 of my batteries safely all at the same time. I can charge 2 2S 7600's and 4 of my 2S 2200's from storage to full in about 30 minutes.

    I suggest reading these threads:
    http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...charging-setup
    http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...rger-vs-cooker

    I feel I should warn you... it is very tempting to go the cheaper route; but the cheap route usually ends up being more expensive in the long run.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
