Need Power Supply to run 2 chargers

I am in need of a power supply to run two Astro 109's from 120v.

Hopefully someone has done this with something at a reasonable cost.

Thanks.

Jeff

Depends on how many watts they will be operating at and your defination of reasonable. An astro Flight switching power supply will provide 13.5 volts at 12.5 amps.which is approximately 168 watts available here for $70 . A 12 volt battery being charged(maintained) with a charger will power a bunch of chargers depending on the size of the battery and the charger output. I use a 80 Ah deep cycle gell cell with a 45 amp. 13.8 volt power supply maintaing the battery. Six chargers,two Ham Radios all running at once and never a problem.

Hereís a couple of nice power supplies. I use the 45amp but depending on your charging requirements you could go with the 25amp. The power supplies have built in cigarette lighter for running other accessories and also power taps on the rear. After 2 years of service Iíve had no problems or concerns with it. They are not cheap but well worth the money.
