Default power supply

hello,

i'll be getting a duratrax intellipeak ICE charger tomorrow and i'm not sure what power supply would be good for it.

would a novak n-power do the job? (it's only 10 amps though)

i don't think i need a much better one, because i'm also gonna use my NOVAK smart tray for discharging.

so just wanna make sure that ICE and N-POWER is ok.

thanks

i woudn't get the n-power over priced for just a 10amp ps. The ice reccomends atleast 15 amps. Radioshack has a 15 amp ps for $80

Here is a link to an excellent ps, and the price is almost unbeatable.

I don't have one of these, I have the 25-amp one from Radio Shack but this Pyramid one is the best thing going. It looks better in person. The white or light-blue portion that you see is a mirror-like finish. Looks good -JB

Another vote for the Pyramid, I have it and it's the best power supply I've owned for the price.
