    Cool Best Cheap Charger?

    What's the best BASIC wall charger. As in one that has a plug and an output. I'm not looking for a super expansive one, but maybe one that turns green when it's finished. The battery I'm using is a rustlers.

    Thanks

    Well do you mean the REALLY basic ones that take like 6 hours? If you're using a nimh I'd would get a multi chemistry AC charger. You probably will get a lipo at some point so might as well future plan. They charge like all types of batteries. They also charge fast. They're around 50 bucks, totally worth it

    What do you consider cheap? price range? in this hobby a charger is probably the last thing you would want to go cheap on. I'm sure if you love this hobby enough you'll want more speed and power. with more speed and power you'll need a lipo battery. In order to charge a lipo battery you'll need a lipo charger. right now you're probably using nimh batteries and charger?

    I'd recommend to you the traxxas EZ Peak Dual Charger that charges ID Nimh and Lipo batteries. $100. It's good for when you want to change over to lipo batteries and convenient for you now.

    This is about as cheap as they get and can still be called "GOOD."

    Forgot to mention what I recommend. I got thishttp://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00NLBZJ9C/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?qid=1459294569&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=680ac&dpP l=1&dpID=51tjNk2QKdL&ref=plSrch not only is it really cheap, it's not that bad quality. It has lots of security features programming. Honestly it's a really good charger. The only possible thing to complain about is it isn't really powerful, but has plenty of juice for 2 and 3s.

    Agree^^ Something like this will be money well spent in the long run:

    Edit: Sorry Lionkev...looks like we posted links to the same charger. I had a hard time with your link.
