Default Help with power supply

What kind of min. power supply stats do I need to look for to power two Duramax Ice chargers both charging 6000 mah maxamp 2s lipo batteries at the same time? I'm not mistaken that these can both be run off the same power supply am I? Also, can these chargers be run straight off a car battery or deep cycle marine battery without a power supply? Sorry for the noob ?'s.

Any help is appreciated!

Look at what charge rate you need. A 6000 mah charged at 1c is 6amps. Two of those at the same time although with two seperate chargers would be a total of 12 amps. You would need a power supply that gives you at least 12 amps. The one you listed at 20 amps would give you enough power for what you described.
