Hi Guys

I am considering a nitro slash from tower hobbies.

My question is, can the chargers handle 240v or will I need to buy another charger.

I would consider buying this from an Aus supplier but I cant find it in one.

SPECS: AC Input: 100 - 240V
DC Input: 11-18 Volts

Discharge Current Range: 0.1 - 2.0A (10W max)
Current Drain for Balancing Port: 300mA/cell

Even though the specs say the charger will be fine, it will more than likely come with the wrong lead to the AC plug, this is very common with anything coming out of the US. You will need to get the correct lead from Jaycar or similar supplier. The lead is usually just an IEC lead one end and 240VAC plug for the other, although there has been a few chargers come through with the 3 leaf clover shaped lead also, I would be waiting till it arrives and then source the correct lead.
