Charger Question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a Savage and was wondering if there's one charger that can be used for the hump pack, the rotostart battery, and my JR XS3 tx battery? Recommendations? Thanks.

Lots of chargers that can charge all of those...

One that charges all them (plus a glow ignitor) and I think it will do 3 of them at once is the Dynamite Nitro Field Charger. I've never used one personally but it looks interesting and I don't think it's too expensive.

Another great option is the Super Brain 977. It will do everything, 1-8 cell NiCAD or NiMH, 2-3 cell LiPo's, 6 or 12v Lead Acid, charges 2 things at once, and channel A can discharge as well. Selectable currents for charge and discharge. It's a great charger and only around $100 I think??

There are so many more that can do everything, best bet is choose a price and get suggestions in that range... you can go as little as $50 for ones that do what you are asking or all the way up past $300...

Bantam BC-6 it's not cheap but it should last you forever! Charges anything an it's AC AND DC so you don't need to lug around a seperate 12 volt power supply. It's also very easy to use and ultra reliable.

Good luck!

When I got back in to the hobby I bought a $40 Hotbodies peak charger. AC/DC in with 1, 2, or 4amp charge (No LiPo though).
I liked it so much I bought a second one

That Superbrain 977 sounds sweet though.

Thanks for all the input guys. I picked up a used Duratrax digital peak charger. It should be sufficient.
