Default Power supply Q

how is the black box compared to other power supplies if im only using it for charging? it gives 4.5Amps but its light.

also will a power suply with 220-240v input work in canada/us? or will i have to buy one thats either universal or designed for 110v?

It is very small, but has very little power. if you run stock, its worthless. I use a radio shack 25 amp powersupply and it is small and i run 2 chargers off it no problems. it was 100 bucks too.

I use the Black Box to charge my receiver packs for gas racing, but the NPower for electric racing.
