    Short Circuited My Charger?

    So. I still use the traxxas 4 amp nimh charger that came with my truck. I have a car battery in my porch that I use to charge it with. Since traxxas for some STUPID REASON gives you a CAR charger. Anyways, I put the clamp that go on the battery on the wrong side, completly my fault and now It doesnt charge. I plug it in and It flashes red on the charger which means error. Is there anyway I can fix this? Or do I have to get a whole new charger.. Please help

    The problem is most likely the fuse.
    A correct replacement would be a 5.0-Amp 250V Fast-Acting 1X" Glass Fuse.

    just buy a real charger. the ez peak plus 6 amp is the only way to go. 100 bucks and you can charge 2 batts at once, up to 6s and quick too. Also it discharges, stores, and charge just about any batt you can buy, life, lipo, nimh, pb, and tells voltages of each cell so you can tell if you have a bad cell or not.
