Default Power supply question.

Would this power supply (first link below) be strong enough to power two of these chargers (second link below) each charging a 4s 5000 lipo pack at the same time?

The power supply can only handle 16 amps, the chargers can charge at 10 amps each, do the math.

If you charge the packs at the recommended rate of 1C (5 amps), then you will be fine.
