Ok so I have had 2 hp server supplies stop suppling power for no reason so what do y'all recommend around 200 bucks or so... I am looking at the meanwell 1000, efuel 1200, fma power station... I only need at most 25amps at 24v but would like something portable I can bring to the field.

My eFuel 1200 looks like a piece of art. Love it.

At 24V I get about 28 amps but I have a 30V charger so I'm under powered.
I'm convinced the power supply would run two of my chargers at 25 amps each though because one doesn't even make it work.lol...

And just an FYI...The Turnigy 1080W power supply is also a nice one for $130.

Mine put out 26 amps at 18V on my 30V charger.
It would rock a 24V charger.

I just sold it for $55

The above power supply is above the $200 price point but I've been using one for a year or two now and I've been very pleased. You might have a look.

I have to say +1 on the Junsi/Chargery, but with caveats.

First I like the adjustable output voltage, and I also like having 3 parallel outputs that can each take the full output rating. The e-power has a limit on its main output.

But, you need to power the supply first, and then plug in your charger. If you look at the voltage reading when you first power it up, you will see the voltage fluctuate. I've seen it read as high as 60 volts. I really don't know if that is what is on the output when it is being powered up, but my powerlab 8s didn't like that at all, and I smoked two of them before Howard at Revolectrix got me straightened out.

I was sure surprized that they replaced the Powerlab twice before saying they couldn't replace any more under warranty, and after that, I had a long discussion with Howard, and we figured out the problem. Just turn on the supply, and let the voltage reading stabilize and then plug in your charger.

Having said all this, I like the unit a lot and haven't had any other issues at all since I learned how to operate it.

I have the 1200W 60A version of that SkyRC supply.
Super nice.

I recently bought a new PLab 6, and they included a warning sheet about using the Junsi charger you mention. They found out about it (somehow, maybe from you!). The instructions are as you have outlined. Kudos to Revolectrix.

That Junsi glitch is an absolute deal breaker for me.
Seems crazy to damage your charger by just turning it on.
