From the PL8 Users Manual:

To take advantage of PowerLab 8’s full power capability, the power source should be
26.35V DC (higher voltage does not improve output power), and capable of delivering a
minimum of 60A to PowerLab 8’s input. Per Ohm’s law, 26.35V x 60A = 1581W. However,
it is generally not advisable to pull 100% of available power from a DC power
supply. Therefore, if you want to attain 1344W of output power to an 8s Li battery, the
power supply should be capable of 1700W or higher for best results.
