Default Need Help with Battery Selection and Charger

I have the following Airplanes and batteries:

ParkZone Trojan T28 and it has 2 batteries:

Parkzone LIPO PKZ 1031 11.1v 1800 mah (19.98WH) cont discharge to 15C
MaxHP Emax 2200 mah 11.1v 3S1P 20 C

ParkZone T28 Micro

1s 3.7 150 mah 25c eflite
Venom 150 mah

Parkzone Gee bee Micro AS3x
2 Batteries -E-Flite 200mah 2s 7.4V 25c lipo

As of Right now, I only have the chargers that ParkZone has provided to me. They can be seen here:
Trojan t28 44" Charger: http://tinyurl.com/b5une8z

Do I need something better or will they suffice?

Also, on the Micros, I have been shopping at Hobby King. I want the best performance out of my Micros. I found the following 1s LIPOS:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...mpatible_.html

Are all of these batteries safe for the esc and motor? I would like to get longer flight times. Also is there a big difference between a 130 and 160 in regards to flight time? The 130s are in stock but all the others are backordered?

Also what is the best way to charge all of these 1s batteries?

Thanks for all your help. Eflight has a device that charges 4 at a time for $30.

The more money you invest in batteries, I would say it gets more important to use a better charger.
Get a charger that has a screen where you can see what is happening.
Because you have 3S 2200mAh packs I would get at least a 250Watt charger.
If you plan on going to bigger planes with bigger pack I would get an even bigger charger.

Those batteries will be fine for your ESC.

Buy a parallel charging board or cable to charge more than one pack at a time.
The $30 price is way too high for that.

If you are planning to go to larger models in the future, take a look at the Cellpro 10xP chargers. Several club members have them, and are very pleased with their operation. They are a little pricey, but it will take a long time before you outgrow one of these.
