Titanium Innovations CHA100 Switching Hobby Charger
The CHA100 is truly a versatile Ni-MH and Ni-Cd battery pack charger that can operate off of 100V - 240V AC. It charges 7.2 Volt, 6-Cell Battery Packs.
It's portable, convenient design resembles an ordinary wall power adapter but has a Standard Tamiya plug coming output that connects directly to your battery. The plug adapter sticks out far enough to allow you to plug it into a power strip next to other plugs without hogging the outlets.
A simple LED in the back indicates the charge status. A 800mA charge current means your packs will charge quickly (usually a few hours depending on the pack's capacity). The smart charger will switch over to a trickle charge to keep your battery topped when it has reached a full charge. As an added safety feature, it has a safety time that will switch to a trickle charge after 4.5 hours.
This is great charger for any hobbyist and at the price you could get a charger for each of your battery packs. Charge battery packs for your RC cars, boats, and planes.
