Is a 7-10 amp power supply strong enough for the Ice or Hyperion 0606i lipo chargers?

Here is the power supply I've used for the last year. I run two ICE chargers and charge two Maxamps 7.4V 6000 LiPos at 6 amps. I think any more voltage than that and you'd need a larger power supply, not to mention a higher capacity charger most likely. But those are the biggest batteries I own so I'm setup good for now.

Not so true if you don't plan on running nimh or brushed motors

If you are going 100% lipo brushless hyperion.

I have the ICE and the Checkpoint 1030 both are awsome chargers but If you don't plan on running brushed motors or nimh the the hyperion is a great charger.
I'm going to be selling both of mine here quite soon. I just got rid of my last brushed motor and 6 cell pack.
