I use a supply that puts out 14 and it works just fine. I break in motors and run my lathe.

lmk thanks in advance.
It will work fine...unless you plan on charging your batteries at 15A......or run 2 chargers at 8A...

Anyway, your supply will safely "trip" the first time it comes across a motor draw of more than 14A, at that point you can decide whether it is worth handing over the extra dough for a larger supply.
