I'm attempting to convert a Computer PS to Power my Multiplex 5014 charger. The voltage on the PS is reading 11.8 even with a 10w 10ohm resistor. The manual for the 5014 requires 11-15 Volts. Next amperage is reading 3.45. It clearly states it will provide 12v @ 8A on the label. Is this amperage that I'm measuring some kind of no load thing? And do you think this adequate voltage? I'm no electronics whiz, just a guy trying to save a buck.

11.8 is inbetween 11 and 15 volts you are fine here
Next amperage is reading 3.45. It clearly states it will provide 12v @ 8A on the label. Is this amperage that I'm measuring some kind of no load thing?
plug your charger in and start the charge watch it for the first charge (check on it every 5 mins) I think your fine as long as you are not trying to charge a 6s pack at 5amps. JMO

I sent you a web site to your pm this will help you and if you still have questions drop me a pm and I will give you a couple more it's really easy and they work great I just sold one in a charger combo
