Can I plug the silver charger (left) into the same power strip powered by the power supply and run power at the same time? So I can slow charge one battery in around 1hr and charge anothe in 25min or so?

Ps-390 watts max 30a
Black charger - 200watts max
Silver charger - 50watts max

Thanks in advance!

So I guess I just need to replace the alligator clips with banana plugs?

I can't see a second set of plug holes on the front of the PS. If it doesn't have another place to plug in the second charger, you will have to clip the alligator clips to the appropriate terminal, taking very much care not to short across the opposite terminal. What I did for a long time with a PS that had just one set of plugs was to go down to Radio Shack and get a set of 3 male/female 4mm banana plugs, and made me a charge strip that would accept 3 sets of plugs from different chargers.

The only caution is that you have to know how many watts you are charging at on each charger so that you don't request more power than the PS can supply.

When I was using the strip, I could run a Powerlab 8, a Hyp 615I duo and a Hyp 720I duo at the same time, but I just had to be aware of how much power I was pulling, as my PS could supply 47a @ 24v.

Yes, sorry, I didn't realize what that was. It is exactly the same thing I made for my setup, except mine wasn't nearly as professional.

Having seen that, yes, just put the correct size banana plugs on the charger in place of the alligator clips and plug it in. All the outputs should be wired in parallel, so the only thing the PS will see is the total of the power requests from the chargers.

Just out of curiosity, where did you get that E Fuel power strip?
