New to Mini Z

Hey yall, New to mini z stuff. looking to match some sets of AAA batteries. I raced about 15 years ago with TC3 and JR Racing. been out of the grove for a while now. is there an all in one charger for doing this now? Used to have to have 3 different pieces of equipment. For right now I am using Energizer ultra Power Rechargeable. doing pretty good with just a conventional recharger. but like I said before looking to make some match sets when I get better batteries. any suggestions and links to items would be great.

I use a Powerex MH-C801D to do the bulk of my charging, before and during race nights. It is very basic and easy, does eight at once, has two modes (fast and slow).

I also have a Powerex / Maha MH-C9000 Advanced Battery Charger that I use to check capacity to make sets, refresh batteries, and charge them. This used to be my only charger, but I needed more capacity and got the one above.

I stopped fussing with special batteries and run Eneloops and eneloop knockoffs from Amazon. A little less punch, but very even.

They're both around $60

It's a good choice. Around 80% of the guys in our club use one. Being able to fine-tune the charge rate is nice. Also nice is the "Refresh and Analyze" mode, after you've used several sets 20-30 times.
