Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Pee on it and walk away.

Re: power supply for your charger

I bought a new PL6 charger to charge my 12s Stick packs ( batt's soon to come, baby steps )

Did tons of reading, seeing what others are using for their psu's and setups. SO i followed some advice and did what others do. Bought 2 HP DPS-600PB Server PSU's.

Project information came from these 2 sites,



Grounding information came from this one.


Pic's of my setup..


DC Ground cut from AC main line chassis ground, in case of failure etc etc.

PSU's tied together & tested.

Both working & charger connected.
