Do you want recommendation on special power supplies or information on voltage and amperage needed?

There several that would work great.

However, I like the Samlex/Radio Shack/CE one.

i too use a rivergate 30 amp, and am more than happy with it. it easily handles my 2 pulsars and my gfx without breaking a sweat.

just a thought....if you're going to put down the jack for a power supply, spend a few extra bucks to get a decent one with a good amp rating. just like a radio or a charger, the power supply is something that you're probably going to have for many years. it's worth the money.

All I have to say is that I have had my Rivergate for about 9 years and have run all kinds of chargers and haven't had a lick of problems. I have run it off a generator (sp?) and maxed it out before having a problem with the rivergate. This past indoor season I had up to four chargers including my GFX breaking in motors without problems. I agree, you get what you pay for.
