Which are the best battery chargers?

I have a 8.4v pack and the charger that came with it has no light or indicator for when charged or how long to charge.
Are smart chargers with fast charge option the way to go?

Those TLP chargers are extremely outdated now.



The IMAX B6 is available for under 100 bucks and charges everything from Lead Acid batteries to LIFEPO4

Something with an LCD (so you can tell what you're doing and how much it's charging) and smart charging capability with delta peak shutoff, like this. I may be a little biased because this is the one I have, but it's awesome!

I agree but still have and use my TLP when I have a LiFe on the other one.

I liked the older one Jugglez had but he still carries a nice one:

Essentially the same as the IMAX B6 and just a slight variance to the B6D he had.

TLP's are blue boxes of death

+1 to the iMax B6, does lead acid car/motorcycle batteries, NiMH, NiCd and LiPo

These HobbyKing ones are under $20 and pretty good.

I have experienced zero issues with mine, other than the fan is noisy and might get replaced soon, but did get it extremely cheap with a gun sale.

+1 for the B6, I have the B6D and it's a fantastic charger.

And my buddy and I owned the only 2 HFC beretta's in Canada that shot like sniper rifles and had zero issues for 3 years
Every company has their lemon rate, TLP's is just as high as HFC
Doesn't mean you've got a bad charger, but there's a chance

Pretty sure that one is a knockoff, there's no serial sticker on the bottom

GT Power A6. It gets the best reviews of any of the B6 style chargers. Still has 5 star rating with hundreds of reviews on HobbyKing.
