There are Angel CR123 Conversion Kits or buy a charger:
Angel Charger SpecsSince replacement chargers are no longer available anymore, a lot of people have been asking for the specs on the stock charger so they can try to find suitable replacements. I took a multi-meter to my stock Angel LCD charger and my stock A4 charger to get the output specs.NOTE: The charger from the LCD is identical to the charger for the IR3 and they can be used interchangeably. The charger for the A4 and up is universally interchangeable and can be used to charge all of the Angel batteries except for the LED, including the older 6 volt LCD and IR3 batteries.Both chargers were plugged into a 12v cigarette lighter to wall-outlet adapter. Results:LCD Charger:Input from wall adapter: 16.96 voltsOutput from charger: 15.96 volts, 1.41 ampsA4/Flex Charger:Input from wall adapter: 16.96 voltsOutput from charger: 14.95 volts, .632 amps (632 milliamps)The barrel connector on the charger is a 3.5mm outside diameter size H coaxial DC power plug. The outside sleeve is positive, the inside sleeve is ground (note that this is backwards from most common configurations).Conclusion:A NiMH charger rated for a battery voltage range of at least 4.8 volts; with an actual output of 12 volts and at least 600 milliamps; with a 3.5mm OD size H coaxial DC power plug connector; and with positive on the outside sleeve and ground on the inside sleeve should be suitable for charging any Angel battery except the LED (LCD/IR3/Speed/A4/A4 Fly/G7/G7 Fly). You can commonly find these types of battery chargers at RC shops and hobby shops. It's important to make sure that any charger you buy is designed for NiMH batteries. The Angel circuit board has a cut-off circuit for charging, so it is technically possible to use a "dumb" charger or a plain DC adapter. However, it is a good idea to use a "smart" charger with its own cut-off circuitry rated for at least 4.8 volts so that it will not over-charge or damage your battery.Additional Information:Quote:Originally Posted by phantom01231The board itself (for the marker) has a cut off circuit. Now the intelli charger I think has a cut off/ trickle charge function. Ill have to try and dig out the schematic to check and see. Regardless of the function of the Marker board it is always smart to use a smart charger with trickle and or a cut off function. That goes double for these older boards that love to crap out. If sourcing a charger to replace an old angel charger it is suggested that you use a plug that fits the socket correctly as the socket is a switch as well.The following chargers would be suitable in terms of their specs, but do not include the correct size H coaxial DC power plug connector for the Angel circuit board (you can add this connector yourself). The Tenergy Smart Universal Charger has been confirmed to work:Tenergy Smart Universal Charger for NiMH/NiCD Battery Packs: 2.4V - 7.2V4.8V - 10.8V NiMh & NiCD Battery Pack Smart Charger2.4V - 7.2V NiMH & NiCD Battery Pack Smart ChargerDISCLAIMER:Your mileage may vary. Use this information at your own risk. Using an incorrect charger can cause damage to your battery and/or circuit board, including leaking/exploding/burning batteries that may cause you physical harm. Use your brain.
Used ones go for $20-$40 in my experience.

Welcome to the small Angel club we have here
You can also get a universal charger from Radioshack. http://www.radioshac...oductId=3875403
That's the one I use for my A4 (requires a sold separately "H" tip)
Have you shot it yet? You may need to modify the stock regulator to get it to shoot below 300fps if your're using a high pressure tank.
