I found a power supply with a small price for the Triton that can give
5A or 9A. The power supply has two version of 5A and 9A. It is universal 110/220V input and 12V output.
The prices are 25$ and 39$ accordingly
The URL for buying it is:

http://store.mini-box.com/ituner/posoformi.html

I hope that it will solved the triton AC/DC adapter problem without going to complicated solition with the PC power supply.

The 9A supply should be OK. The Triton manual says 13A supply is required, but that's if you're doing high cell counts.

I run a 5A to power my Triton. If you are only charging Rx & Tx batteries, then the 5A will be fine....... but, the 9A will give you more future versatility.

Flying a heli is like seeing the Matrix, it is a mind bending experience.

gyan,

The PC power supply is not an elegant solution like A power supply for laptop. This is my opinion. Th epc power supply is just a workaround.

I call this my charge just anything from just about anywhere. Unlike stated in a previous post its elegant enough as if there was much elegance to flying RC birds. Anyhow depending on how large of a powersupply you have depends on its portability. All that you see there which so far charges anything fits into one of those micro camcorder soft cases. Smaller than a kids lunch box and lets me charge everywhere. The PS used only has a 12A rating but I don't do large lipos so it is sufficient. I do 5A charge the 3300 bricks for my sons RC truck with no issue
If you use an ATX PS you wont need to use a lightbulb load or anything other than the actual PS switch on the back..

I respectfully disagree about the elegance. I have mine running remotely & have 2 banana plugs mounted right where I need them , I don't even hear the fan running! They're GREAT!!!

raknin - thanks for the info, that is a very tidy option. I am using an adapted AT supply at the moment - it works but I agree the laptop supply looks neater and is more portable.

I am using a 50 amp Astron power supply...Does that mean I am overcomplicating things?

It would have to be separate or it needs UL approval

There's a lot of them out there already. I use a 25A supply from Radio Shack I got on sale. Works great, has a warranty, no worries.

Jgiang thats awesome ! can you detail us some of the wiring for different voltages ? i gotta make myself one of those too !

for the meanwhile, here is mine:

i like it alot, and i use all "car lighter" plugs on my chargers so i just installed a 3 way female on top, together with a lighted switch and banana plugs (if i ever need them) - works great and quiet ! cant get much better then this !

Oh ya, i put 4 of those little rubber grommets that go under chairs on the bottom of the PSU too - for elegancy !

in the ps there are some 5.15 volts and 3.3 volt just take the line and connect to the bannana plug. if you don't have the volt meter then look on the circuit board. it will tell you which wire is 5volt, 3volt or 12 volt. for the wire that you not use jus desoldering to take it of the circuit board

Still a great thumping cumbersome box I have a lab supply which can go 0-30V 0-3A and it is smaller than the PC supply - beat that When and if my PC supply carks it I'll get a laptop ps for the Triton.

0-3A and it is smaller than the PC supply
that's only 3amps max on yours. My is 20 Amps and it about the same size as the triton charger
