Ok, let's back up a step and do a little education.

You can charge Lipos @ 1C. C = mAh / 1000

So, a 1C charge on a 1200 mAh pack = 1.2A input.

If the charger can do 1C on a pack (1.0A on a 1000 pack, up to 8.0A on an 8000 pack), you'll have the pack charged in an hour.

I personally use nothing but my BEL charger, which I bought off of Ebay at the recommendation of Tres Wright (a moderator here). I paid 45.00 for mine. I liked it so much, I started importing them myself, but didn't rip my customers off like the Ebay guy did me.

The Apache will charge up to 1.5 Amps, in case you ever buy a bigger pack like the 1500 series.

Did I miss anything?

*edit* This is a great deal, so you can charge your batteries indoor: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...t=power+supply
