Default 6 Amps power supply for $19.95

Found a 6 amp power supply at Walmart. It's being used to power coolers/small refrigirators for cars to be plugged in a household 110 volts.It's located where you buy ice coolers at. Small size and very light. Only thing is it comes with a lighter socket. Right now I am using it for a triton electrifly charger which only charges 5 amp max. The power supply was perfect and very convenient because it was light and small 5"x3"x3"only. Plug the PS in the wall and you're all set.Not bad for $19.95

For those concerned with safety or the younger racer the Wallmart supply would be a better option.

I also need only a ps for the 5 amp charger I use at home.So I don't have to bring out the track charger and ps if I need to charge something. I have a 20 amp pyramid myself that I had for years which is in the box ready to bring to the track.The 6 amp $19.95 ps was sufficient. A lot of us,our time is valuable. The convenience of it just plugging it in and costing less than $20 and it's right there to purchase. I don't have to bid on it or wire it up when it gets delivered from the seller. The other ps is great . But for my needs the Walmart ps is good enough. I'll keep the other one in mind when my pyramid 20 amp gives up.

I did an amp draw test on my Quasar pro, while charging at 6 amps it draws 6.40 so 6 amps just won't cut it...
