depend on what size battery you want to charge
that power supply is only 2,5 amps continuous and 5 amps max
you need 5 to 7 amps continuous to get the most out of that charger
hobby king has one

I see on case 5A and 13,5V, 5*13,5V=67,5W, acc6 need max 50W, you have free 17,5W.

Wrong. It clearly says 2.5A continuous. Additionally, the Accucell-6 has a 50 watt max output and is ~80% efficient. As such, it needs a power supply that can continuously supply at least 60+ watts in order to operate at full output.

I'd get a better supply. They're typically ~$10 or so on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-110V-240V...-/140567853604

Thanks for your swift replies... My problem was with the amps saying 5a but only 2.5a continuous but your replies have cleared it up for me, will order myself a nice bench power supply and should be good for all my needs, Cheers again Dave
