Buy a real charger. Your batteries will thank you.

You can get a good one for $60.

The ThunderAC6 would be a great charger to pick up. It's in the price range that PB mentioned.

Just make sure you get a charger that is LiFe or A123 compatible. Some day you will thank me. Lithium will replace NiMh in a few years.

lipo will be here for a long time to come yes but will not become the only battery because not all people want the upkeep of lipo. so NiMh will be around for many years to come.

I never said LiPo. I said Lithium. There are many different kinds of Lithium, and some are safer and easier to care for the LiPo. For now, LiPo just happens to have the most punch per ounce, but that will change soon.

For example: LiFePo4, which is half the weight of NiMh. Higher voltage. More consistent curve. Twice the lifespan. And safer (ever see a NiMh cell explode? Its a grenade). LiFe is used in the latest electric automobiles, computer laptops, smart phones, military radios and other equipment.

NiMh will fade, just like NiCd has.
