How to us a laptop PSU as my Charger PSU

Hi guys

Need help, I blew my PSU and I am planning to use my old laptop PSU as a PSU for my revolectrix multi 4 charger.

Basically its what I need 13V 5A DC power regulated. Anybody out there who already did this? any advice?

Is there any special mod I have to do or should I just remove the existing terminals and connect it to the right polarity of my charger..

thanks!

Basically, with the laptop power supplies, just cut off the connector, solder on the right one, check polarity, and you're good to go. Did this as well with an old laptop PSU, no problems and cheap!
