Re: PSU's and DC-DC convters or Is There An EE In The House!?

Otherwise get a multi-chemistry lithium battery charger which directly uses AC input and gives you high enough current output (that does not damage the pack). These are available for both RC hobbyists and electric bikes.

chargers with built in AC input or ones that come with small AC power supplies are FAR to small again the charger i have now is like that and only 150watts see other posts for the math on that
the power Powerlab6 is 1000watt and 8 is 1344watt
but they ether need to be run off a set of deep cycle Pb cell batteries or a 24v to 30v bench supply
so here is what im ending up with

None of the Revo products use heavy enough gauge wires or quality high current connectors.
Industrial grade supply would be one like this

OK, I had a look at the Powerlab and it is supposed to charge multiple packs in parallel with taps coming from each pack using separate 9-pin connectors.

Instead of a 30V/50A bench supply, which will be really expensive, consider my original suggestion of an adjustable 24V AC-DC module from Vicor, TDK-Lambda, etc. Set the output to match maximum safe voltage rating of the Powerlab.
