What are you charging (current and future)? Cell count, capacity, max specified charge rate?? Do you want to be able to charge multiple packs at once??? Any interest in charging other chemistries or just lipo????

I really like the iCharger line but it is hard to give a good recommendation without knowing the above.

Ok, you are not going to need much to charge that one. It says 1c max charge rate times 5 ah (1000mah per ah) means you need, at most, a charger capable of 5 amps. Also make sure it can balance charge 2s.

I don't have any experience with it, but this one seems pretty bad ass for the price and includes everything you would need:
