Can you get your hands on a dynamite prophet sport duo in Australia? I'm in the US and I got it for $87 dual charge 50w per channel or if you plan to get bigger and faster rcs that run on 6s @Jerry-rigged can show you some (needs more than 50w per channel

If you are in Aussie - I would say got to Hobby king. If you want a 50w charger with several channels, they sell a knockoff of the old version of the Hitec x4. Or if you want a decent single channel charger, look at the IMAX charger.

For that 4-channel charger, it is DC only. However, seeing as it is 200w max total, it could easly be powered off an old PC power supply - Converting them to provide 12v for a charger is pretty easy. If you are interested, post up, and I will give instructions.

The Dynamite chargers are OK, but even here in the USA, there are better chargers for the same money.

Fury, Raider,
For the record, I have the UP100AC Duo and love it, but it only cost me appx $90 USD of Amazon. Not the $150 the OP linked to...

That Ultra power charger has come up on a few threads now.. I was looking at the UP stuff on Amazon, and came across this Ultra Power charger - 2 channel, 12A/120W per channel, AC/DC. $106 with Amazon Prime free shipping. Looks very interesting. 120W per channel would let you charge 2 6s 5000mah packs at 1C - not bad for a $100 charger! I wonder if the OP can get this one in Australia...

I payed $99 for my Prophet Sport Duo, and it is half the charger, and not nearly enough power now that I am running mostly 4s. I may sell my PSD and buy one of those...

I see the up120ac duo is rated at 110v -220v , we run 240v in Australia will it still work without any problems?
On that link says 240v but..

220/240V is the same thing Max, we use the same voltage. If a unit is marked as being 110-220V, that usually means that there is a switch of some sort on the unit allowing you to change the settings for the supply voltage.
