Any 12v power supply will work, depending on how fast (C rate) you charge. A 24v power supply will give you all you need and will last you thru many chargers and battery sizes.

If you are charging 6S packs, take a closer look at the i306B.
The 3010 will charge 6S packs, but it will handle up to 10S packs. Personally, I will never have a 10S pack.

Also, either the 3010 or the 306 will charge up to 6 packs in parallel.

As long as the 6 packs are all the same cell count and relatively close to the same capacity, the charger will deliver up to 1000W of power.

I use 2 old Dell 750W 12v server power supplies.
There are several threads dedicated to converting these old server power supplies for use as power supplies for the LiPo chargers.
It is actually pretty simple.
And, you can find the old power supplies on eBay for $20 or $30 each.

By using 2 750W power supplies in series, the i3010 (or the i306B) sees them as a single 24v input with up to 1550W source.

I charge 6 6S LiPo packs at once. They are all 3300mAh.
If you program the charger to deliver 19.8A, that will charge all 6 batteries in less than 1 hour effectively at 1C (3.3A) and fully balanced.

Of course, you could charge 2 6S 3300mAh packs in parallel at 3C (19.8A) and they will be charged in less than 20 minutes.

You cannot reach this level of power without 24V input

Go with the 24V supply, if you can.

Also, a supply with a variable voltage output is even better.
As it can be used to power your avionics when testing on the bench.

+1 on 24 volts. It's nicer to the charger and keeps running temps lower.

I'm running 48V into my Revolectrix Dual PowerLab 8x2. One nice thing about having the input voltage to the charger higher than the pack's terminal voltage is there is no delay during the charge process as the charger does not have to transition through the buck/boost phase.

Another reason for getting a 24V supply for our latest chargers is that in the near future....since our vehicles are requiring more and more power for their electronic systems....they're going to switch to 24V instead of 12V.

With the higher voltage, smaller diameter wire can be used, since space is at a premium.

A well selected PS is a "tool" in the box....try to get the best you can afford...so you don't have to "upgrade" as often as you progress.
