I use the Astro Flight power supply with my TP 1010C charger. It works great.

Computer power supply is the way to go. You can go to your local computer fix it shop and pic up a 200 watt or so power supply for free most likely.
takes about 20 min and supplies plenty of CLEAN power
It takes a while longer to do a good job but its not a long long time.

I got a 150w power supply for free and threw some plugs on there and away I went. 150w isnt a big one but it supplies my Triton with all the juice it can handle.

one nice feature is that I tapped the 12v line and the 5 volt line. I can plug any receiver I want into the 5 volt line for radio setup and I never have to worry about the ESC getting too hot or needlessly draining a battery.

well, in a former life, I was an electronics tech. I was pretty meticulous when I made both of mine. and I also put a switch and power led on. I also put shrink wrap around all unused wires too.

Id estimate that I spent about 3 or 4 leisurely hours assembling mine.

Im not saying it cant be done in 20 minutes, hell, all it takes is unscrewing the case and stripping a few 12v lines, and ground lines, throw a load on the 5v line and you can have yourself a good AC to DC power supply.

LOL it seems your idea of "throwing on some plugs"and my idea are a little different

It would appear that way. To each their own though. I'm sure your P/S works just fine.

Mine just looks better if you remove the lid

You will need at least a 5 amp output on the power supply for the Cellpro. The bigger the better (you can run multiple chargers off of it).
