    Xtar chargers come with a DC adapter and should fit you needs well!

    When you get to 4 bay it's hard to recommend a "cheap" charger that is still going to do a correct job when charging batteries.

    I vote Xtar VC4

    http://lygte-info.dk/review/Review Charger Xtar VC4 UK.html

    It's USB powered and requires a 2.1A USB power supply to charge at it's highest amp capabilitiy. (not included)

    Star vc4 from Illumn. Comes with car charger but you need to buy the wall charger block separately.

    Might as well get some Efest batteries to put in it so you can collect the insurance when you car catches on fire

    Do you mean the Xtar VP4? That comes with both the 12v car cord and 12v wall power supply. (Or at least yours should have.)

    That wouldn't be a bad choice either. The VP4 only has status LED's, the VC4 has a display readout.

    Not all of them do now RJ. They have released several USB only powered chargers that do not include a power supply. It makes sense, in that some people may already have an adequate supply, some may want car charging... some may not need car charging... Keeps the cost of the actual charger down in context of picking what you want or need to power it.
