    well i live in japan but on a military base, the power is either higher or lower the japans sockets. so i think i need an american charger and battery

    Battery and charger really arnt much difference in the cars. Basicly for a charger, you want something that has different settins such as Voltage setting, trickle on or off, discharge, and amperage. Some recomended ones would be AE Pulsar, Tekin BC112, Duratrax Intellipeak. They can range from $60 - $300. So depending on what you want to spend, will decide what type and style of charger you should get.

    As with a battery, basicly, the higher the numbers the better. Stick with 3300's as your highest tho. Unless you really like your own handy work, you can just buy a stick pack and be set. Otherwise you can build your own batteries. But GP3300's are the ones to get right now, i've heard nothing but bad from 3600's.
