    ok, it is afew dollars cheeper than traxxas one but it will last awile if you charge it right, I charged mine too high and it doesn't hold a charge but if you get a good rate of charge it will be good. Oh whell here is the link

    use the one that traxxas suggests they are better made.. but that IMO...
    Speed is the only way to go.

    i use the the traxxas Flat Rx Power Pack (<-- click!) & TRX Power Charger (<-- click!)...have used them both for a year now and have always worked flawlessly...the charger even comes with an adapter to charge your 7.2v stick pack for the ez-start wand...also note that you can use the jatos on-board charging system with the flat pack...there is an extra wire in your receiver box that has a black connector on the end that is not hooked to anything (this is on 3.3 jato only)...simply run that wire under the chassis top plate towards the front of the truck by the exhaust pipe hanger mount and antenna mount...there is a rubber plug there...clip the connector up under that spot and thats your charging jack...

    ***another note***
    be sure to make sure the trucks power switch is in the off position before attempting to charge the battery...if you fail to make sure switch is in the off position you risk the possible chance damaging your receiver and/or servos...

    I ordered the Traxxas one from Tower, but I grabbed an extra one from my LHS and it is an OFNA. I haven't seen any problems yet.
