It could work, but you will most likely not be able to charge at the full 5 amp capability. The 5 amp supply is rated at max output. At max ratings, things get hot and voltages don't always stay stable, so you may get error messages from the charger. Your best bet is to get something in the 10 amp range at 12v, or preferably in the 13v range. I would also get a supply with a fan because if you tax it for an hour while charging, it will get hot.
