You certainly can. Then you also need the power supply to power it up. so add a few hundred on top of that if you want to charge with it. This has a 45amp power supply.

The charger is super nice, and probably worth the entry price. But you have a perception issue here.. People are looking for high AMP chargers at that price, and 15amps is not that. I myself would like to get one, and when the price is lower, I will.

Nolan,

How are you going to sell the chargers? Have you set up a website yet?

Not with all these PC/Server PSU conversions out there.

The website will be up as of mid-late July. Right now via word of mouth and Facebook. Porterhouse Motorsports.

Tim you are very correct it is a battle right now but I feel when you use the charger with its footprint and its abilities to still run other items in full it's a great product. It after all is still the most powerful AC charger out.

The chargers are beautiful, of that there's no question, but over double the price of the Racer's Edge version hurts.

I really do not doubt the ability of the charger ( I want one ). I only doubt the ability of you to separate me from my hard earned 350 bucks.

Adam which one are you referring to? I only saw a single 8amp at around half.

I do actually appreciate the feedback but I think you guys are beating a dead horse. We know this charger isn't for everyone. This is for some who wants a smaller AC charger that can do higher amps for AC. Plus you can run any accessory off it while charging. It's to save space and get things accomplished. Other than comparing it to a charger is DC charger or saying its expensive is there any feature or anything anyone would like to see a quick video of showing off its features?

If anyone wants to see it and touch it I will be attending the Region 5 on-road race in Cincy.

Now that someone is now carrying it in the USA I don't need it. Just bought another system afew months ago.I tried to get some response from the manufacturer but got nothing after trying for over a year. It will be awhile but I'd still like to get one later.

Anybody considering the TrakPower charger should watch this video first:

+ YouTube Video
