CHARGERS

Our Favourite charger is the G.T. POWER C607D. It will usually only take only 1hr to charge your battery, has 240V or 12V input, charges 2-6s lipo, Nimh and lead acid batteries, has a digital lcd screen for battery diagnostics and we can custom make a charge lead for you. 

Our other favourite charger is the G.T.POWER SD4-I. It will take around 2hrs to charge a 5A battery because it has a maximum output of 3A but will charge nimh and 2-4S lipo and we can custom make a charge lead for you.

For the kids using NiMH batteries, we like the SKY RC EN20. It has a maximum output of 3A  and it's super simple to use so they can be responsible for their own battery care.

OUR BUDGET CHARGERS

Are you just looking for a budget charger? just to get started?

Either of these two might do the job for you.

NIMH Batteries ONLY G.T.POWER N802. This charger has a fixed output of 2A and is suitable for 1500mah batteries and up with 4-8 cells.
