Thanks Hebiki.

I've been wanting to do something like this and you saved me some time. Put one together this afternoon and it could not have been easier.

and the guy at radio shack point out that speaker wall plate can be used. plus you're right.. the gold is an extra added BLING BLING bonus!

if your power supply is 7 amps, you can charge at 7 amps all day long with it... the charger does not use amperage to run itself.. it uses voltage...

i used a 7 amp indi power suply for 3 years charging at 7 amps,, i never had a problem... a charger does not need any extra power to run itself...

when choosing a power supply, the output should equal what you want out of it... ie lets say u have a turbo 30.... you only charge at 7 amps, but you will also be breaking in motors... the motors can pull up tp 13 amps in some cases,, so you would need 13 amps out of your power supply...


99% of power supplies will put out more then they are rated at, for surge purposes...

Here it is. It looks suspiciously like yours.
Took less than a half hour to put together. Thanks again.

Here is my Distro box. Everything to make it was at Radio Shack for a total of $27.00
And a link to my 20amp PS.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...753126829&rd=1
I got it from a company but paid the same price.
It is super small in comparision to others.
Hope this helps.
Oh and I have three chargers all at 6 amps and a 12v osilatting fan that clips anywhere and a motor cooling staion all running at the same time and I haven't popped a fuse yet...

Default ATX Power supply

Hey guys, great thread! I am building a PS from a 500watt 12v 20amp computer supply, and I have a question. I have built them out of older style at supplies, but this is the first ATX, I have resisters on the 5volt line but it still pops when I run my LRP charger on it, what else do I need to do to keep it running?

Thanks for any help.
