This is the DuraTrax Onyx 100 AC/DC Peak Charger. The Onyx 100 is an ideal entry-level charger for electric car and boat modelers looking for a charger that can automatically peak both NiCd and NiMH batteries, as well as accept AC or DC input power, for the lowest possible price. Selectable charge currents range from 1 to 4 amps, and compatible with cells as small as 600mAh “AAA” and as big sub-C size makes this charger an excellent choice for 1/18th and 1/10 electric models. This charger is also great for charging the receiver packs on nitro vehicles. A small, lightweight built-in AC power supply helps to make this charger easy to take anywhere.

  • Charge Status LED's
  • 5 Year Manufacturers Warranty
  • Tiny, lightweight built-in switching AC power supply, so it’s very portable and great for small pit areas
  • Peak detection with automatic trickle charge takes the guesswork out of topping off packs at maximum power
  • Selectable charge currents let you use the Onyx 100 on models from 1/18 to 1/8 scale
  • Ideal for electrics — and also charges receiver batteries for nitro models
  • Destined to make cumbersome, windup timer-based chargers obsolete!
