Help!
New to lipos, help with some charger direction please.

As the title says I need some help. I have been into RC for 28 years off and on and recently am getting back into cars and parking the helicopters for the winter. I am picking up a losi trail trekker, losi 1/24 short course brushless and an Axial crawler and want to run lipos. My only lipo experience is with Blade helis which come with their own charger. I am looking for charger recommendations that will charge the 2s batteries for the minis but also handle larger packs for the 1/10 scale stuff. Is there a charger at a decent price point that will handle this? I don't need anything extreme and would like to stay in the $50-$75 range if possible. Any recommendations? If it can do my little blade heli 1s batteries that is a bonus but not a necessity.

I've had nothing but good results from this charger:

If you get parallel charge boards you can charge a few 1s packs at the same time.

Thanks. That appears to be exactly what I need if I can find an AC adapter for it. I don't see one listed on the site.

another good one that even ships from the u.s. is the thunder AC680. http://www.hobbypartz.com/73p-ac680-accharger.html

It can charge the 1s lipos fine, and it can charge up to 6s. I use it mainly for 2s, for my foamie airplanes and my MERV LiPo's. It also does NiMh well.

That charger doesn't need an AC adapter, it has a built in power supply. Even comes with the plug to plug it into your wall outlet.
