Help me find a power supply - 04.09.2010, 07:08 AM

For my hobbyking gt a-6 power supply i need a 240V power supply that can charge at 10a(so over 200w i presume,charging a 5000mah 5s 25c lipo.)
I could only find one that was $70 alone.Any links to cheaper ones?

I see that the max. voltage for that charger is 18V.

I bought one from here for my NET3(250W) charger but I got the 24V version:

You will need to add the connectors for the input power plug (240V) and the output plugs for the charger.

The power supply doesn't get hot when I charge 2S at 20A.

go on rcgroups forum and hit up feathermerchant. He sells some really good server power supplies that work like a charm. I have 2 of the big 46amp models, I can run 4 hyperions at the same time off 1 PS.

Heres a link to his site, easier if you are not a member or rcgroups: http://www.feathermerchantrc.com/

Well I've ben using my "FeatherPower" 42amp inverter with great success, I even tried charging with my Hyperion Duo charging 2 5s packs and my Venom charger charging a 4s as advertised no even a hicup. Works perfectly as described !

The only thing I had a problem with was finding a plug for the power output side ?
I scored a plug from the local PC repair shop for free but struck out every where I went for the other. I wound up just soldering some wires directly to the output prongs of the inverter with a EC5 plug and a Deans on the other and she works flawlessly.

Here 2 pics befor I wired up the second outputs

Glad that worked for you Jeff. I have had excellent service from the 46amp model I got from him a while back. Even found the identical unit on ebay for 20 bucks, so I have a backup. I have run 4 hyperion chargers off mine and have not had an issue.
