Just wondering what chargers everybody else uses...
I use the Dynamite Prophet Sport II. What do you use?
Thunder ac6!! Less than $50. Does everything you will ever need a charger to do.
I absolutely love the Hyperion EOS0606i charger. Great buy!
Rusty - MERV - Pede 4x4-Alias
SPC Lipo Power
Duratrax Onyx 230 (chargeur double pour mes nimh)
2 x Duratrax Onyx 240 (pour mes LiPos)
dynamite passport ultra here love it!
Monster Mutt vxl
Thunder T6 for me either. It does the job done for the little price.
Dura trax ICE Ive had it for a while its very fast, but now with the merv, lookin to get the Onyx 240 so I can charge both packs at once.
i just asked in another thread, but wondering if anyone has charged their nimh's at 3amps? im using 1.5 now, just wanna know if its safe to go to 3
Venom ProCharger here. Love it so far!
I really wanted to look at different chargers and was hoping that the hobby store that I went to had the Traxxas EZ-Peak 2 Amp, but they only had two Dynamite ones to pick from. One (the one that I got) can charge up to 2 amps on AC and 4 on AC, and the other can charge 4 amps on AC and 4 on DC, so I only needed 2 amps for AC, and it was cheaper, so I picked that one.
I use the core rc uac-40 with no problems so far. Only cost me £50
from what I can tell, none of the recommended chargers seem to come with a Traxxas male
so you have to factor in an extra $6 to $10 to get an adapter (or banana->Traxxas lead) for someone who's not about to venture into soldering. $4 more if you solder.
Am I wrong in this?

Here is my picture from Picasa:
For what it does, the adapter really isn't that much money. About $7 and works great. If you don't want to solder anything, this is the way to go.
And, even though (at the current time) it says that I am an R/C Qualifier, I'm a newbie, too, bhchan. I've only been on these forums for about a month. My first real R/C truck was the E-Revo VXL 1/16 Brushless (hence my name) and I just have had a lot of questions and was interested in the other forums and managed to rack up over 300 posts (so far).
Congratulations on the Slash. Traxxas makes absolutely AWESOME R/Cs!!

I'm using a ******* accucel 6, it's been a great charger. My lap top charger works as a power supply which is really nice, it's definitely not a low end charger.
I like turtles.
venom pro charger works well for me
this AC6 charger seems to be marketed more at Lipos, would this be a good charger for NiMh?
Gotta love up to 20a parallel balance charging!
LiFe packs are awesome... almost.
Pack size/weight per mAh is not the greatest when compared to LiPo...
But there is not as much danger with LiFe...
a trade off.
However, charging batteries faster than you can discharge them...
and doing this safely...
is like a little slice of heaven.
But, think of this:
With LiPo and this high of an ampere rate, I can safely charge 6 2200 mAh batteries at 1.5C (19.8a) in parallel... Roughly an hour and a half of driving with less than an hour of charging...
~So with 12 batteries, I could go all day long and still give them proper cool-down time.
