What voltage does it deliver, Have you converted one?
if not 24v then it's kind of useless since two of these are too much anyway.

Kind of expensive if you really compare it, you can get 575watt for $15 so that's 5750 watts for 150 if you count it that way.

Even better, I bought three server power supplies and wired them in series to get 37.5v, and my i-Charger can accept 38v. The higher the voltage the more efficient everything runs. The best news is the size, weight, and cost of the server supplies. Under 10lbs combined, fits in my charger and tx box, and under $65.Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Ya that's a good point MrMel and i'm not sure about the voltage because any power supply with output amperage of over say around 50.0 amps really does not help todays high power charger like a power lab 8, it will need a power supply with at least 24 volts at 50.0 amps to achieve it full output of 1344 Watt so if this 3000 watt power supply is let's say a 20 volt 150 amp output thats not going to let a power lab of any model achieve it's full output, but i think i should also point out that the more you stack power supplies in series the more your efficiency of the current you pull off the 110 household line vs the current that goes into your LiPo batteries goes into the toilet as well.
i think anytime you can use 1 power supply vs 2 or 3 in series for high power charging the more efficient your charging station will be unless you do what i do when charging smaller cell batteries with the charging station i built, i to have a dual power supply charging station but whenever i'm only charging a battery like a 3 cell or so i only use one of the power supplies with a charger input of 12.8 volts 41.8 amps which is more than enough to allow my power lab 6 to charge at 6C or more and still use the 110 line current efficiently without a lot of waste, so multiple power supplies can give the user more flexibility and efficiency if used correctly.

charge safely and responsibly every one and have fun !

Two iCharger 3010b's can overtax a standard household outlet at max ouptput, so even if the power supply could produce 5000 watts the, the home wiring is the source of bottle necking.

Watching my rig with appropriate measuring and monitoring tools has helped me to conclude that anything over 20 amp charge rate per charger simultaneously would make me nervous about the household wiring. This pulls about 13.5 amps at the plug outlet that feed the power supplies i have wired in series. The circuit is a 15 amp breaker. Because other rooms share this circuit I stay conservative, especially since my garage is the furthest point from the electrical box.

I have tested 30 amps per charger and simply dont wish to run everything at maximum, although it worked during testing for a short duration.

My Honda 2000 watt generator cant maximize my rig, and a Honda 3000 would be sweating to keep up, but is not a reasonable option due to lack of portability.

Most importantly, the project was extremely affordable and simple.

Has worked great for over a year now.

i have found that there are some households (mostly in the most up to date parts of some cities) that have 110 volt 20 amp outlets and can be identified by the plugin having one prong turned sideways, this will help some but if you have 220v single phase power there are ways to take advantage of that but i don't want to get into that right now, maybe someone else could jump in..........    ▲

Most residential circuits are wired to a 15AMP breaker.
A kitchen would have a 20AMP circuit.
Most of the time a circuit in the garage is 20AMPS.
An electric dryer circuit is very common and are always 240V.
They are usually tied to a breaker of 40AMPS.
An adapter could be made to plug your PS into that big plug.
No chance of tripping that breaker.

Only if they are fed from a different buss bar in the panel.

I would make an adapter for the dryer receptical.

What type of measuring equipment are you using?

I've thought about getting a Kill-O-Watt meter.

Yes, kill-a-watt, temp probe, and good old fingers. I also use a watt-meter between power supplies and chargers at times.Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Looks like the Cisco unit is multi voltage including 12V and 42V. I would suspect the majority of the wattage to be dedicated to the 42V output.- Chris
