Default has anyone tried this?

I was wondering if anyone has tried using a computer power supply to power a charger.

If found this idea on this site

I'm using it. No problem what so ever so far. You just need to fix some resistor to the 5V bus to bump up the 12V bus and voala....the ps will work like a charm.

I'm doing it too, for almost two years now...

There's a couple of threads, where you can read more, if you like.

Default power supply..

I did this about 7 years ago.. To utilize the 5v for motor run in and lathe power .. it is still working and has never given me a problem .. plus if you do have any issues there are a few more wires you can connect up for 5v. ..
