Need a Battery Charger/Cycler

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good solid battery charger/cycler. Right now i am only playing with Nitro airplanes, but I was also thinking of getting making a electric foamy, or even some 36" electric balsa planes. (Li-Poly). Who knows, maybe I'll get the son a RC Truck for xmas. I am currently using the Futaba charger that came with the radio, but would like to upgrade as soon as possible.

What type of battery charger would be the best _investment_ for present and future use? I am considering a budget of $75-$150 ?

Try this one..I have heard good things about it and in your price range..

I just bought one and have just peaked a couple of Nimh packs and so far so good. Very easy to use and will do Nicads and Nimhs up to 8 cells and 1-3 cells lipo....

Thanks for the reply, i went to the hobbico website, and took alook at some of their products.

I decided I might as well buy the best charger/cycler I can now, otherwise I will just be buying another one next year, so I am buy the Hobbico Accu-Cycle Elite. GH has it for $169.00. Thats only $20 more then my original budget for the charger.

I have figured out I am better off buying the best I ever think I will need, otherwise, I will just end up buying a replacement again next year. ( I am already checking out new radios )

Good charger Shawn.

It is one of the few that comes with a power supply, and that is worth the extra 20 dollars right there.
