Also the setup instructions given are not the greatest, any ideas or other places to get better instructions?
The Core RC Charger has 2-sets of Power Input plugs for versatility. You only need to use a power single input. I removed the clips and soldered on the 4mm gold banana style plugs to use on a power distribution block.
As for the 12VDC "only", anything power supply between 11.5V to 14.4V will work fine. I used a Novak 9A, Ofna 18A, and Competition Electronics 23A power supplies on my Core RC charger without issues. Each of those power supply has slightly different power output voltage.
