If you are in the States, save the $$$, avoid Radio Junk and go to Wal Smart and look for a wall transformer that outputs at least 13.8VDC and you are in Biz. If your outside the USA just ignore my input

Ner ner i got mine already Although i did order it in January.
I was recomended the power supplies i listed by Troy of BPP
What you need to make sure is that if you are charginbg 3 cell packs you have enough amps to power the charger, if you want to charge 2 three cell packs you need 3A-4A to be SAFE im not sure a wall adapter can handle that but as im outside the US i havent had chance to try a Wallmart charger.

Sorry for the post about the wall transformer......I had my Wes-Tek Lipo charger in mind at the time. The SC-2 definately needs more amps input than a Wall xfmr can provide. I guess I also reacted to the "Radio Shack" part because their prices are so darn high and the RS sales people I have dealt with, don't have a clue (electronically speaking that is). Sorry again for the incorrect input. The SC-2 does not have voltage stepping that would allow you to use it on a three cell series connected LiPo pack. It's got to come from the power supply.
