I made my own out of a computer power supply i think it is 24amps and has worked great for the past 8 years or so.

+1 I also made mine out of a computer supply and by far this is the cheapest way you can get these things off ebay for $10 to $20

Good share Hal. I went the server power supply route.

£30 for an HP DL580 800W power supply. 5 minutes work to solder on a pair of banana jacks and I've got a rock solid 12v 40A supply that lets my Hyperion Duo charge 2 packs without breaking a sweat. :)

I've now got a pair of 1600W PSUs sitting in the garage, waiting to be turned into a 24V supply. This'll need a bit more time and care because there is more wiring to be done and one of the cases will need de-grounding for my installation (and therefore well insulating and covering in warning stickers!) Pretty cool to see someone's gone in to production with the process tho
