I've used the duracomm powersupplies for the past couple of years and they're really good and nice and thin. You can find them at http://www.speedworldraceway.com/Pag...ID=201&Search=

I have used both the Rivergate and the Duracomm power-supplies ... no complaints on either - but the Duracomm is a little smaller in physical size.

http://www.shopatron.com/index/166.0.4839.0.0.0.0

KO resells it, it can be found at Ham radio places for little less (around $160)

32 amp for $160. Lot cheaper then other 'RC' Power supplies.

Just make one from a PC 500 watt psu, you will get 20-30A for less than $60

i have used the samlex running three chargers all day with no problems. charging at 5 amps. i dont knoe if i would try four. you would be running at max. rating.
the rivergate 30 amp may be a better choice.
www.rivergatedist.com you can order direct. its cheaper

it won't run four chargers but for the price you can easily buy two and run 6 chargers if your were so inclined. The pyramid psv-200 is a 20 amp switching power supply it is very small (7"X7"X2") and very light at 3lbs and is stackable with no top vents. The best part is that its $55 pretty much every where.

i got a 28 amp power supply for sale from Integy/SHE. i used it before to power two pulsars, motor break in, pitbull and GFX at a race with no problems. (all four chargers going at once charging at 6amps) while running my lathe at 5volts. check my signature.

And alot cleaner output. Today chargers required a very clean power supply for their tiny Microprocessor.

32 Amp max output terminal is on the back.

2 5 Amp terminals on the front

1 10 Amp terminal on the front.
