Yeah swing and miss there man. That is a 5V 200A power supply. In other words not a useful model for power a charger.

yea im going through the rc groups thread on running 2 server supplies in series and i work with acrylic and polycarbonate on a daily basis so i could make a safe case for them and the charger but now i need to find 4 nice cheap server power supplys

the other output on the cisco power supply's is a 48v output so it would cook any charger you put on it

My friend just bought a 24v 40A power supply. Powerful enough for most jobs and super small to carry around.

I looked at TJinguy's stuff and it is great information. I ended up getting 2 Dell server powersupplies for $19 on eBay. Server power supplies are on there all the time, cheap. Went thru his instructions and now have a 12/24v powersupply that is good for 57 amps.

I did end up finding tj's walk-through and ordered 4 dell units for like 50$ shipped on eBay. Crazy how cheap they are

I am just finishing up the mounting on mine and deciding which case to mount it in. After doing the mod to get them to turn on outside of a computer and soldering the wires on, I tested them again and am still getting 12.07 volts. I have not tested the 24v connection yet as I have not made up the powercord with the ground removed for one of the supplies.
