Help I need a Power supply!!

I got a turnigy mega 380w charger and now I need a power supply, the chargers manual says input power is 11v-18v so, whats a good power supply to get, preferably from a dealer here in the US.
Thanks!

I just got one of the big Turnigy power supplies last month and itís fantastic. I got the 1080W option because I wanted to use several chargers at the same time. They are available at the US warehouse and are available in several sizes. A large power supply allows for future growth so donít buy too small.

The 540W version is also very nice

Note the manual says:
380W @ input voltage >15V

So in your quest for a power supply you need to find one between 15V and 18V, that's going to limit you. One of the reasons I've avoid the chargers in that class. Your best bet is probably the 540W linked by RC Man.
