Other Places to get Battery Chargers besides Hobbyking?

I've got to the point now where I have to get a battery charger for my LiPo's I can't rely on other people to charge my batteries.

I've been watching a charger I want on HobbyKing for about 3 months now (this one) and it's never been in stock, (this is one that I've had recommended to me). So I looked today for alternatives. I wanted a charger that simply plugs into the wall and away you go, but all the resonable prices ones are out of stock (Over 60 seems a bit steep). So I look at the DC ones and investigate a seperate power supply, as before I've been recommended one but this time it's in stock, but the power supplies that are in stock are at least 3 times more expensive than the charger itself.

So my question is, does anyone have any other recommendations/locations to purchase? I don't really want to try eBay due to it being a battery charger and a bit on the dangerous side and eBay is a wretched hive of scum and villainy at times.

I have seen this one on Amazon, it appears to be good (although it comes with an american plug, I assume I can just get a UK one for a couple of quid), does anyone have any experience with it?

Bit more expensive, but Modelsport UK, literally down the road from me have a similar one in stock: http://www.modelsport.co.uk/skyrc...ger-60w-6a/rc-car-products/395139

I've bought stuff off "blade hobbies" who seem to be on eBay, Amazon and bonanza.  I'd give them a shot via ebay

That seems to be perfect, an all in one unit from a legit source and a known brand, thanks!

Going to make the purchase now.

I am pointing people to this charger if they want a good safe Nerf one, it uses a 12v 5A laptop PSU and is due in stock at Hobbyking shortly. No XT60 input required, so easier to get a PSU for. Doesn't do LiHV.

Would you believe it, after giving up waiting for the charger I want to be in stock at HobbyKing to arrive and ordering a different one from somewhere else, this morning I get an email saying it's back in stock.

:/

Order the one you want, return the one you don't. Seemples.

The one I ordered has already arrived and I've opened it all up. It looks pretty cool so I'll be sticking with it as I really can't be arsed/don't have the time for going through the hassle of sending it back and buying the other one.

At least Hobbyking is in danger of having SOME stock in its U.K. warehouse! It's been absolutely appalling for common items for months.
