Actually you can use a real car battery if so inclined...but a 12 volt power supply is quite nice. I myself prefer the Samlex 1223 ...23 amps constant ....25 peak.... You can pick one up for 100 bucks at Ham Radio Outlet...www.hamradio.com This model is nice and small and will handle up to three chargers at once....

Because the charger accepts DC power input only.

I use an Integy/Eagle Racing 14Amp power supply with my pulsar. Haven't had any problems with it so far.

Get the Novak N-Power power supply. It has two out-puts so if you have two chargers that require a power supply you only need one power supply. And it doesn't cost any more than other power supplys. Only $120, but that's still quite a bit of money, atleast for me .
