Parallel Power supplies

Hi-
I've got an Astro power supply. It can't supply enough current when I have all my chargers in use.

Can I hook up two of these in parrallel?

Thanks
Mum

Not a good idea. Can't you just connect some of your chargers to one PSU and the other(s) to a second PSU ?

Chargers

Why parallel? Just plug your chargers in to two seperate sources. Maybe I just don't understand. I'm running two power suppies as I write, but not in parallel. Tex.

OK, I'm a slow writer, T.

I should have explained more. It's one charger with two outputs. A schultz. The primary output can feed a 20 cell pack at up to 10 amps. Not that I fly 20 cell packs anymore. I also have an FMA charger. That is, if it ever gets back from repair.
