one of the mrc superbrains ought to fit the bill. either a 959 or 969 depending on what you want to spend. I went with a hobbico pro field charger because I wanted the ability to do lipo's and didn't need to do 7.2's though it will do them at a slower rate.

I know people that use the superbrain 959 and they like it. I use the Druatraxx Intellipeak and now have the Pulsar2 Competition. The Pulsar is a lot nicer than the intellipeak because of added functions that the electric racers need (motor breakin, matching and the higher amp discharging). The pulsar2 competition also comes at a higher price, $160. I beleive the intellipeak can be had for less than $100. Good for charging tx packs and stick batteries for starterboxes. Also has a choice of 110 or 12v power supply. The pulsar can only operate on 12v unless you get the duracom power supply.

I recommend the Triton to everyone. It can charge everything from 1 cell glow drivers to rx/tx to car packs to li-poly packs. It is probably the most versatile charger available.
