1st of all I have never heard of a soldering iron uses a Power supply. If so Anything Above 10-13 Amps Will be fine wehn using only that one Charger. Most power supply are normally the same IMO.

Look at the Radio Shack 25 amp power supply on their website. It has a nice shape to it and is only $99. Your LRP charger can sit right on top of it.

If you want to dress it up...Competition Electronics is coming out with a 25 amp power supply in about 3 weeks...It appears to be the same configuration as the Radio Shack unit; except, the prototype picture had really nice electrical connections.

Generally, 7amps+ is enough if your just running a charger, but if you want to run a soldering iron at the same time, first check the required amps for the iron and go from there....

pro4x;

Check out the 'Rivergate' power supplies. They make them in 5 amp steps with the 30 amp being the most popular and are bulletproof.

If you buy one now, you will be able to pass on to your Grand kids when THEY start racing.

Hi

Does anyone else know anything about the CE power supply?

Any pics, maybe from a big race event?

Thanks

Dave

Go on ebay and get a 12volt 13amp supply for $17.99. Small and compact. Adjustable voltage. I have three of them and also the lrp pulsar competion charger. A deal you wont find anywhere else. You can also use a powersupply from an old computer you might have to just load the 5volt side enough that your voltage on the 12volt side gets up to about 13.8 volts. I tried it as a project and it works great also.---Just some suggestions.--Dave--oh yeah the ebay sellers name is ramboy I think or ramboy.com

Here is the front picture.

Go to Page 25 on the Pro Match Batteries string in Electric On-Road to read the messages and to see front and rear pictures of the new CE power supply.
