Hi anyone that reads this,

i am a total newbie at this and have recently decided to get involved in robotics, as i have always wanted to. Anyway, I am ordering the parts for the $50 robot but I am not able to find a charger that has the right connector for this battery: http://www.tenergy.com/11112

Can somebody help me and offer a solution? I was thinking of getting a normal charger with a tamiya connector and getting an adapter for the connection of to the hitec connector on the battery. However, if someone can offer a better solution that hopefully requires no adapter, that would be amazing!

Thanks,

CeresVoyager

It is not uncommon to need to make adapters from one type of connector to another.

A reasonable priced charger that works well is the IMAX B6. This does come with adapters to most of the popular hobby battery connectors.

This charger will work fine for that battery. Just be sure to use the battery specs to setup the charging (1C max charge rate).
