The other thought, is what I did. I bought a wattage PF12 (I think). It got good reviews, but I bought it used from a guy that never used it. (It was in original packaging). It cost me $34. I plan on using that, until I can afford to get a more premium charger. I will still have this one, for backup, as well.
Though, in all honesty, I have had a mixed bag in what I have picked up, off ebay. The ESC and charger seem good, my radio is kind of a flop.
