Power Supply 12v 30amp

http://dx.com/p/12v-30a-iron-case-po...10-220v-125352
This power supply was found by another member but i cannot find the thread so he deserves the credit, however i have bought one and can't be more pleased for $33 free shipping and is doing what it says on the tin.It is smaller and lighter than i thought the case is aluminum,it is also very quiet.I adjusted the voltage to max 15v and threw everything i'm capable of at it 20a, voltage reading never dropped 15.1v.It has 3 12v outlets so you can run 3 chargers easily or it would be great for the quad and duo chargers,hope this helps somewone.

As i said i am only capable of throwing 20 amps via 2 chargers paralell charging and this thing don't even break a sweat,the fan is temp controlled and the unit is very quiet runs cool,as the chargers ramp up the voltage is stable at 15.1v.The three main features of this PS are selectable 110-220 v input,adjustable output voltage up to 15v and three 12v power outlets.The case is aluminum and not steel as advertised and much smaller than you would think,my plan is to mount it on the wall at the club right by the bar so anyone can hookup via 3 bananna plug outlets.I have opened the unit and had a look inside and the soldering quality looks good.It's a pretty good deal with free shipping you could buy 2 of these for the price of one P350 25a unit $70.Cheers Peter

I'm wondering if somewone smarter than me could see if it's possible to hook two of these suckers in series for a 24v 30amp unit at $66.Even the guys doing server supplies are charging over a hundred+shipping and those things are bigger heavier and more expensive to ship.Don't try this if you don't know what you are doing you could kill yourself that's why i'm asking.

Would someone please post a picture and details of the setup they did with this.

Can it supply enough power to charge two 6S 5000mah at 2C at the same time?

I was thinking about using two of the 12V outputs for chargers and the third for a 12V computer fan to run full time.

If I'm not mistaken this would be a good power supply for a charger like the icharger 106B-plus 250W6S Balance/Charger to parallel charge two 6S 5000mah batteries.

Thanks for the link I just ordered one.

The only thing missing in the photos in the link provided is the outlet connectors has a cover as it should.Hook up is dead easy look at the pics.The three terminals on the right are for input power the three in the middle are 12v nagative and the three on left are 12v positive.Doubt if you'll get pics as they are new i'll see what i can do for you when its mounted this weekend.The internal fan is good blowing a lot of air and quiet, i suppose if you are planning to jam it to the max you could hook the fan direct.

This one will come a lot quicker, a little cheaper, and appears to be the same (or very similar).

On Ebay - ships from Portland - decent feedback

Good on ya Glenn if you live in the US fine,the other is free worlwide shipping and will obviously take longer to recieve.If it were possible 2 of these in series for 24v would be the mutts nuts for an I Charger 208b,one reviewer on the site i quoted says it can be done,i have a 206b and would'nt mind moving it up to 24v just did'nt want to spend that much with this thing it becomes very affordable.

The 106b+ is a 250w charger and this PS is 360w so you've even got room for another small 50w 4 button charger like an Acucell 6.Don't forget to up the voltage on the pot to 15v the I Charger needs 13.6v.

Thanks,
Can your pictures show how you made the connections right on the unit for the power cord and connections to your charger, or banana connectors?
