I still have the charger from my RC car days. It's the duratraxx intellipeak ice and it can charge any type, any volt and any amp with adjustable charge rates too. Good thing I didn't sell it off cause I can use it now for airsoft.



Wasn't cheap though... It ran me a good hundred something.

this is what I run

got it ofcourse for my RC stuff... but it charges "EVERYTHING" nicad/NIMH, lipo, lead acid. smart charges, cycle/refresh... . but I beleive you have to buy the lipo cables, and the AC (wall plug in) cable seperately, even then it was still under $100 shipped for mine

When I got into airsoft, I was surprised at how much it and RC cars have in common... Including high cost.

This is one of the best "Bang for the Buck" ones I'v seen. I'v been running it for almost two years and it's the same as the intellipeak "ICE" charger. Team Check Point TC 1030. It's not just a charger,but helps take care of your batteries. Nice thing being,same as the ICE charger but cheeper I wish I had one of these 20 some years ago when I started R/C stuff. Not that it matters much now as 98% of my R/C stuff now is Gas lol.

Also, would this charger be able to charger Elite 9.6V 3300mah nunchuck batteries from cheapbatterypacks.com ?

It's cheap but is it still better than a wall charger?

Here is the one I use :

http://www.greathobbies.com/producti...od_id=DTXP4220

It has a good balance between quality, efficiency and price. Of course a 200$ charger that can charge, discharge, condition batteries and all that is better then mine but my definition of "The ideal charger" includes price in it's criterias. For less then 70CAN$ I think that one is great.

greathobbies.com is also a very good retailer. Real fast shipping and cheap too!

Ive never heard of it or seen it being discussed anywhere. Can you find any reviews of it online?

Unfortunately no, this is why I was hoping one of you did buy one of them...

Anyways I'll keep searching, I dont have to charge my battery that often since it's the airsoft off-season
