Default Where to buy Pyramid supply

It was a looong time ago, but I found mine by going to a local electricians store (in San Diego, on Convoy Street, I believe).

Default power supply

Try building one from a pc power supply. You can get one very cheap, around 20 bucks, with a 12v 25 amp rail. It's very easy to build and very cheap. I have built one & know other people that have and it works great.

Best 100 bucks I ever spent was on a 25amp power supply from radio shack. It has been flawless and 25amps is more than you'll ever need. Couple other guys have bought one of these as well and been really happy with it.

ABSOLUTELY, I just picked one up today. I just couldn't wait for my LHS to get in the Much More ones. I'm using it right now to cycle some packs.

I to have one of these Pyramid units and ITS GREAT!!!!!, granted it's rated @ 20 amps and not 25 like the Radio Shack Unit that "JayBee & Racer-Oz" have, but definately fits the "More Bang for your Buck" phrase" to a Tee!!!!!!

I have one of these
http://www.buyreliant.com/psupplies/psv200.htm
And lets just say I can power three chargers charging all at 6 amps and the power supply doesn;t even start getting warm (i.e. the cooling fan comes on) for almost ten minutes. I run a distrobution box that helps connect everything any I can run my, cooling station, a Super cooler and a 12V clip on fan and two chargers on at the same time with no problems.

Here is the distrobution box.
