Latest from Duratrax:

The Onyx 110ís sleek new case will get modelerís attention, but what will get it a second (and third) look is its price. Itís not only the most economical Onyx charger ever; itís also a shrewd choice for the modeler who wants peak charging power and ease. It peak charges 4-8 cell NiCd or NiMH power packs, but also features a separate jack for 4-, 5- and 8-cell radio batteries. All the modeler has to do is select a charge rate and plug it in; the Onyx 110 does everything else. It starts charging when the pack is connected, switches to trickle rates once peak is reached and does both automatically, for truly ďhands-offĒ charging convenience. And with its compact size and built-in AC power supply, modelers can use it at home or take it to the track with equal ease. The Onyx 110 is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, priced right for budget-conscious modelers of all types and protected by the Duratrax 5-year limited warranty.
