Rivergate makes some good heavy duty power supplies. I've seen as high as 30amps.

I've got the 45amp Rivergate and I've run 4+ charges and a couple of lathes without any problems. Cooling fan won't even come on without at least 3 things pulling power off of it.

Although some LHS carry them, its cheapest to order direct at www.rivergatedist.com

great power supply... I have the 30 amp and the only time I heard the fan come on it was about at 100-200 RPM and only lasted a minute. The thing never gets hot and gives a great charge! I ran two chargers @5 amps, a battery cooler and a hudy tire truer off it and it laughed at me!
