The Futaba 230 Volt AC battery charger can charge transmitter and receiver packs simultaneously or separately. The two red Leds indicate charge for the transmitter and receiver pack respectively. It comes with connections for Futaba receiver packs and Futaba Transmitters.
I have two of them* genuine Futaba charger suitable for Canada/USA as I bought a couple of radios from Tower Hobbies. They cannot be used in New Zealand so I’*ll be more than happy to swap –* give your address and I’*ll post them to you…* SPECS: Input: 120V AC 60Hz 7W (US Standard AC) Output- Transmitter: 9.6V DC, 70mA Receiver: 4.8V DC, 100mA
Thank you Napstr, If it is original Futaba Charger then it's doesn't matter made in China or Japan, because we can be sure that it has made as per Futaba quality and standard.
Please be warned – I ordered three so far, but received different Spec – the original Futaba charger that came with my radio weighs only 190g - mode No. FBC-2J , and suitable to charge 9.6V RX batteries and 4c TX at 4.8V, but these are HBV-2C and the Output as stated is wrong – they are suitable for TX 7.2V batteries, but NOT for TX 9.6DC … You’d be better off buying a charger from your local hobby shops, as HK keeps sending you a wrong charger regardless what they advertise … YOU WILL GET; Spec: MODEL HBC-2C(4) Battery type: Ni-xx Input : 230V AC 50Hz 7W Output-Transmitter: 7.2V 170 mA TX Output-Receiver: 4.8V 150mA Rx Weight: 376g

Please be warned – I am suffering from the same problem,
I received charger with different spec:
Output-Transmitter: 7.2V 170 mA instead of 9.6V DC, 70ma
HK keeps sending the wrong charger.
