Yeah, I was gonna say if you have a GFX, I'm not sure you would be able to run both at the same time. I'm pretty sure you could run just a GFX off of it though. I haven't seen anyone that has posted or say the amp draw on it, so I can't say for sure.

Th GFX will suck up about an amp more than the charge current, so at 6A, you'll pull abotu 7A from the PS.

It's about 6" x 4" x 2" not very large at all.

Its actually not that big. Dimensions are in the ebay listings. I am not currently sure of the exact dimensions, so you will have to check in the listing.

The "H V.ADJ" is just the voltage adjust. If you have a charger with a screen that will display input voltage, you should keep it no less than 12 volts at any time and no more than 15 volts. I have mine around 14 volts, give or take a bit.

Hope this helps,

Yup, that's the correct wiring.

You can leave the voltage adjustment as is for the most part. The supply will usually be calibrated to 12-12.5V, which is fine for RC stuff. Most chargers will operate happily down near 11V, and as high as 14 or 15V. Anywhere in that range is fine as long as you're only charging 6 cells.

Did you get the AC polarity correct? Hot (aka Line or L) goes to the narrow plug, neutral (n) goes to the wide one. Make sure it's grounded.

Some supplies won't stary up without a load...try putting a fan on the 12V out when you plug it in.

Um...are you sure that switch is rated for 120V? It sounds more like one for automotive use, which means it's probably only spec'd to 14V.

If it is rated for 120, PM me and we'll get it working.
