You mean LRP Pulsar Competition ?

A power supply with 10-12 amps will be enough for this charger

I think he means that. Well i love the novak N-power supply. It is 14 volts and 10 amps. I got that because when i get a turbo it will power it . It works great and stays cool. I Am useing it to power my pulsar competition and it runs and looks great.

Yes, something like the N Power is great.... but a bit on the spendy side for what you actually get!

Your best bet would be to pick up a power supply from Rivergate..

As for what you need?? I would guess that anything around 10A will suit your needs.... so long as the power requirement doesn't outweigh the available power, you will be ok

a note on the N-power over the rivergate.

The n-power has a lower voltage threshold than the rivergate and therefore has been known to stay on power longer in situations when voltage input power is at a premium. In other words, when my rivergate supply had powered off due to low power fluctuations (leaving me anxiously waiting for power to rise back to within threshold to finish charging my packs) at my local parking lot track, others n-power supplies were still going strong! In retrospect, i would prefer the n-power over most other supplies which perform at the 10-15amp range.

cheers, kaizen

well... i assume that you know that a car battery o/p is 12VDC.. maybe 13-14.4 VDC depending on how good is your battery.... however, voltage don't really mean anything without current...

a good and fully charged car battery can deliver at least 30 to 50 AMps when we initialy start our car... during the cranking of the the key, we actually engaging the solenoid to turn on the starter... this process will draw at least 30 to 40Amps. But, It's justs for a couple of seconds untill the car engines starts... then when we back of the key, this will disengage the starter... so... less current will be drawn by others electronics..

Hope this explain a bit..
