Because I never throw anything away, somewere in my garage I have a box with 15 or so power supply units for those external CD rom and hard drive devices. I wonder how ell those would power and individual charger unit.

I would also add the Duratrax Ice charger and Competition Electronics Bull Dog for economically priced, but excellent chargers.... Neither of these chargers have discharge function (not sure on the ICE) so you will have to get a seperate unit for discharging.

Yeah I converted a PC power supply already and thats what I use now. These are smaller and are used in the external units to power and individual CD or hard drive.

Here is what I did

The Duratrax ICE does have a discharge function.
Amperage selectable from 0.1-10.0 amps
Cutoff Voltage selectable as well

Default Charger covered

Picked up an Orion Advantage, from a buddy at the track. Price too low to print.
That should cover it.
Now I just need a PS to go with it.

Thanks for all the input guys.
