I have never used thier power supply. I have seen them and have never heard any complaints about them. The Team1 guys are a bunch of racers they are good guys and thier business practices are first rate.

It's a nice power supply. It's cheap, small, light weight, and cappable of supporting most any charger/accessories out there. Plus Tres make custom plates for it. The power supplies are made by this company.

Superior Hobbies carries a simliar power supply made by Samlex America the sec-1223 is 23amp continuous 25amp max with thermal protection and themal fan cooling. Best of all the sec-1223 comes with a 3 year warranty through Samlex. It's super small as well and will fit ontop of a Turbo35/GFX.

Default Rivergate 30A vo

I just purchased the rivergate 30A power supply w/a variable output. It still has a "conatant" output is capable of 30A. There is an additional output w/separate switch and and knob to very the output. I've ran 2 chargers off the main out, in addition to doing some lathe work on the variable output. I'm very happy with this purchase, however, as far as size goes..this thing is a monster to lug around.
