Depends on what voltage batteries you are charging and at what rate. At the upper end it might limit the charger, as the charger itself consumes some power (charger efficiency). Usually safe to assume 20% is consumed by the charger.

What I'm not sure of is any possible voltage requirements for that charger to develop full power. Some of the big chargers require power supplies on the upper end of the charger input specs to achieve full power.

Also be aware many power supplies are rated for peak power, not continuous, and may not be reliable at the full advertised power. Many power supply manufacturers recommend 30% or so extra for reliable operation.

Perhaps consider their B35 model or something of a similar power level.
