Well I got into electrics pretty heavy a few months ago and for some reason,went back to nitro and made a HUGE mistake of selling my 1000W iCharger charger/12/24V 1600W server supply ....
Guess I went back to nitro because I thought I liked it more so now im trying to budget back into electrics.
I bought a Trex 600EFL PRO and have 2 flight sets (Four 6S packs) and wanna charge two 6S packs at the same time but not sure I can with the setup I have now..I ONLY like charging at 15A MAX..

The charger I have is a Hyperion EOSO 720i NET3 150W AC/DC balance charger.When I plugged the charger stright into the wall,I found out I can't charge past 3A..So I got a 12V 500W server supply which allowed me to up the amps to 5A "max" which isn't going to cut trying to charge two 6S packs as once (2.5A per pack) ..This charger needs 15V to max it out so how many amps can I charge two 6S packs with a 15V server supply?If I can charge two packs at 10-13 amps,that would be perfect for me..
Also,
Is there anyway to up the voltage from 12V to 15V with the server supply I have now?
Guess if I can't do either,I need a better setup and was wondering about the iCharger 206B+ and the matching 15V 350W power supply..Its a 350W setup so would it allow me to charge both packs at the same time at 13A??

If I can put a 15V supply to my Hyperion and charge at 13A,I rather do that but the iCharger 206B+ is my only other option..What do you guys think???

BTW,
Heres the PS I have now..

Its a IBM Artesyn 514W / 42A supply..Pulled the tape back to show specs..
