This is the DuraTrax Onyx 240 AC/DC Dual Charger w/LCD. Excellent for electric powered models which use two NiCd or NiMH batteries simultaneously, or modelers who rotate through multiple batteries while at the field or the track. Less time charging batteries more time having fun! Charge currents of 800mA, 1.5A, 3A, and 5A plus 4-8 cell NiCd or NiMH compatibility make this charger great for batteries for 1/18 to 1/8 scale electrics, nitro receiver packs, and even transmitter batteries! A tiny, lightweight switching AC power supply is built-in, DC input capability and twin LCDs with blue backlights make this charger easy to transport and use in any environment. Both LCDs feature custom characters, large digits, and a cool blue backlight great for easy viewing anytime, anywhere!

I have ued MANY other chargers and so far this is the best one so far. Ther may be better one but as for me and my family. It's the easy to use for all ages... Not to mention it save time and hassel dealing with two chargers at once.
