The Pro-Tek super 20 is what i'm using for the 106B currently. Plenty of power and extra ports for an additional 106 b and pit light. The super 20 is very light and has the USB port to keep my iPhone charges at the track.

I use this and I like that it's small enough to fit in my tool box.

I choose it over the protek because it is smaller, more powerful and less expensive. It does however only provide the one set of banana plugs, but I only use one power supply per charger so that in case of failure, all of my eggs are not in the same UPS basket.
