    did you have the 6 cell flat nimh batts inside or do you have the 4AA batteries? the 6 cell should have a wall charger came with it and to charge it.....theres a small plug covered by a rubber seal on the reciever box. charge it overnight.

    If you want a decent one at a decent price that will also charge glow ignitors, rx packs, nimh and lipos take a look at the Thunder AC6. I use it for the batteries a nitro needs and my 1/16 lipos.

    +1 on the AC6, comes with an octopus charge that will literally charge every battery hook up out there.

    sure does come with octopus plug but minus the traxxas plug. you have to buy it separately if you ever want to go electric.

    Good point. Thanks for the reminder. I cut off the banana plug and attached the Traxxas one. Works beautifully.

    One thing about the multi-purpose chargers is you need to be careful to select the correct settings before charging your battery. I decided to go with a foolproof charger that is made for the Revo receiver battery. No settings to remember and to set, just plug it in. And I have a different charger for the EZ-Start. The default settings on that charger are the settings I need so it too is foolproof.
