I have a Honda Generator 2000i and I would like to know if I need to use the Power Supply with this generator.
I know someone in San Jose Area (Craig) that had a nice set up, but I haven't seen him for few years. He had like a metal board with several charges, but I do not remember if he had a power supply there.

The Honda does have a 12V DC output but it is very limited. You will have to use the AC output and that means using a power supply to convert 120V AC to 12-24V DC, whatever you require.

Thanks, here is another question.
Do I need a power supply for every charger (I have two) or I can plug both chargers in one power supply.
I am charging 5S Lipos 4000 mah 30-40 C discharge

All depends on how much wattage you need. If you have smaller chargers then you could put several on a single PS. If you have monster units the you might need one PS per charger. Here is my page if you want to look into it more.

Goto eBay but a Iota Engineering 75-90 amp power supply. I run 5 tp1010s off it and same generator full boar. High quality power supply indeed.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

For your specifc needs based on 2x4000mA packs at a a 1C rate you coould get buy with a 12-15VDC power supply that is good for 16-20amps. IF you plan to really get into electrics go with a large power supply that you won't outgrow. I have the same 2000i generator (the generator 12VDC output is good for only 8 amps to charge your auto battery) and a 14VDC, 45 ampere Acopian power supply. Ronlund.com has a 12VDC, 25ampere power supply unit for less than $100.00.
