Hey I am new to the hobby and looking to swap to lipo but still need to be able to charge my nimh. does anyone have any suggestions
any help is greatly appreciated
I just bought a duatrax onyx 235 as my second charger and I am really happy with it.
One shot.....One kill, no exceptions
I'm fairly new to the hobby as well I just picked up my first 7.4 2s 5000mah 25c venom lipo and a primal radiant charger comes w/ 4 adapters charges 2s and 3s lipos and nimh batts. can choose between 1-4 amp charging also has a few more features look it up I believe it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 45$

im going on 1 year with with my traxxas ez peak plus charger. i use it everyday. pricey at around 70-80 bucks, but no complaints from me.
I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.
I also also use the traxxas ez peak plus. I really like the storage mode as well and coming from traxxas you get there great customer service if ever needed :-)
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.
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
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:
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 typed... could be wrong.
