For Sale
12V/24V 1150 Watt Power Supply!

"Feed your hungry chargers!"

Up for sale are combination 12/24 volt, 47 amp power supplies with total power output capability of 1150 watts. These supplies are made from two high quality HP server supplies that are permanently attached to one another and wired in series to provide 24 volt output. They also feature a 12 volt output to allow simultaneous operation of two chargers. They are also easily convertible to three 12 volt outputs within seconds by simply removing the convenient series jumper harness. All outputs have gold plated 4mm sockets to accept standard 4mm male banana plugs. Also have a 24 volt version with EC5 output for FMA PowerLab owners.

Compact (4.5” x 3” x 12”) and lightweight (<7 lbs) so it's highly portable. The base of the supply has been fitted with polyurethane feet to protect the surface of your workbench and provide excellent grip. DC return to chassis ground is internally isolated to provide maximum safety and allow operation from a single Y-power cord (included w/purchase).

Supplies have power factor correction with PF >.99. This means that you can easily operate your 1000 watt charger from a single 110V / 15A home circuit. They are full turnkey and ready to go. Simply plug your chargers into the 4mm sockets, plug in the power supply, and start charging. The fans are super quiet and load dependent so they're perfect for use in an indoor environment and provide optimum cooling for long term reliability.

These supplies can easily operate an iCharger 306B, 3010B, FMA PowerLab 6, PowerLab 8, etc., at 1000 watts of charge power.

What’s in the box:
  • High quality 12/24V, 1150 Watt Power Supply
  • 6’ high quality professional grade molded Y- Power cord (operate from single outlet)
  • Series jumper harness
  • Free mating 4mm banana plugs, if needed (enter number of plugs needed in PayPal Note box to receive free plugs)

It'll feed two PL8's provided total charge output power does not exceed ~1000 watts.

Your PS is boxed up and will ship in the morning.

Hi Randy,

Yes, it is totally possible to add another power supply to increase available voltage and I have done exactly this on one custom request. As these supplies have output voltage of ~12.5V, total voltage for three in series would be ~37.5V. Since this is higher than most chargers will accept, one must check acceptable input voltage range for whatever device is to be powered by the supply.

Regards,
Mark
