Daravon - We are using retired (used) file server supplies. Very high quality. New peice probably $300. That's why.
We started by charging NiCad batteries using a timer and simple current limiter from our car batteries. These were small <200W power systems good for 5min max at full throttle and suitable for powering a glider. Chargers have evolved as as they did, we found cheap ways of powering them when we got tired of killing car batteries.
And as mentioned above there is no certification required for 12/24V appliances like there is for 120/240V.
