Default Charger power supply question

I have the Hyperion EOS 0720i-Net3 and was wondering what power supply would be better to use since im going to be charging both 2s and 4 s packs and maybe even 5s.

I was thinking either
ProTek R/C "Pro 40" Regulated DC Power Supply

or

Dynamite 12V/10A Regulated DC Power Supply

but if someone has a better recomendation i would gladly like to hear it.

You want a least 250W for this charger! I have the same charger and I like it very much!

I use it together with a Maas 13.8V 23A 320W power supply which is a very good power supply too.

The Pro 40 is overkill, it's a 520watt supply. The Dynamite is only 120watts and will limit the charger. With the typical allowance for charger inefficiency, you need a supply with 300watts. I's suggest this one, its actually a little more, 350watts -

+1 I have that PS with my iCharger, and it works very well, it's simple and it's nice and compact.
