Sounds like you want an AC/DC (no seperate power supply) and don't really plan to either (1) parallel charge, or (2) charge anything over 1500 mah or so on a regular basis.

Have you tried Hobby City (hobbycity.com)?

Someone more familiar with integrated AC/DC chargers may have a better answer, but from what I recall, there aren't many and that limits your options.

For example: http://hobbycity.com/hobbyking/store...idProduct=6478

I doesn't have to be integrated as it's included in the price.

My Favorite:
FMA Cellpro 4S- $39.95
Balance Board- $6.95
Chargery A8 PSU- $34.95
$20 bucks over the limit, but the problem is definitely solved. Cheaper still if you can search around here on how to convert a PC power supply for use with your charger.

Or an OK all in one unit:

Dynamite Passport AC/DC 6S LiPo Charger $64.95

Both available here in US.

Much cheaper and you're taking your chances.

Shipping to Europe would be nice. And I thing I'll go with all-in-one, something like this http://www.hobbypartz.com/75p-t610-charger.html

Thanks

The t610 is not 'All-in-one'. That charger needs a DC power supply. You will have to purchase the DC PS separately.

I really like this one. It was my second but I would highly recommend it to anyone for under 6 cells. Order it today and you'll have it within a week for like $5 shipping! And, it is accurate.

I have it for lipo it works great it charges them up to 4.18V per cell and then shuts down but if you leave it it will go up to the 4.2V per cell ...reason why i like it is because i just take it off charge when it first shuts down with 2 beeps because a lot of guy's don't like charging there lipos to the full limit of 4.2V per cell so they last longer. and it's omnly probably 200mah less into the packs anyhow so there is no sense waiting that long for it to slowly charge it up to 4.2V per cell anyhow.

TMO mentioned the Dynomite 6S Charger. I bought it as my first charger and it does work well. I'm looking for something that will charge two batteries at the same time though because I can fly through my battery packs faster than they can recharge
