Can I use this for a charger power supply
http://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-004431 I have one of these and a few others but this is the smallest PS from my ham shack . Can I use it to power say a hitec quad charger or turnigy quad charger ? Also while I'm asking with or shall I say where to get the best deal on a quad charger ? And does any of them actully come with all the parts to charge 4 batteries at once or are all of them like the HK quad charger that you'll have to buy 3 extra of everything to make your connections to charge 4 batteries at a time . Thanks

The only thing the chargers really care about is the voltage and amp rating. This power supply fits the bill on both those criteria. In fact it is a bit more sophisticated than most other supplies. They don't normally need very stable supply either because they have their own voltage regulation circuits.
Multiple batteries will be OK until you reach the 20A maximum.
As for charger selection that is a whole thread on its own (or multiple threads). I wouldn't be able to begin to outline the ins and outs of them maybe someone else can offer advice.
I would suggest you search this forum and others for quad chargers and see what pops up. Although previously I have found using google to search and reading the forum references that come up is more effective at getting an appropriate link.
Good luck I think you have a lot of reading ahead of you
