I run computer power supplies, need to be the old AT ones with the switch coming out. You need to put a resistor across the 5V tap to stabilse the current or else your charger will false peak. I can't remember the rating of the resistor I used, but think it was 10ohm something. It was given to me by a guy to try, main thing is to ensure the voltage off the 12V is stable, if it is you can't be too far wrong on the resistor across the 5V tap.
