anyone need a power convertor for their fast field chargers or whatever? Ive got a power supply convertor that converts AC power to DC power.... 12 Volts........ so you can use it like a car battery, but it plugs in the wall and you can use it on your bench in your workshop........ CSA approved power supply.......... $40 shipped anywhere in canada.......... I have 3 of them, so i welcome multiple buyers!

Please post a picture. Is the 9 amps at 12 or 120 volts?
Perhaps state it in Watts.
Also how clean is the 12 volt signal? Some chargers are very sensitive to the input voltage shape form.

hang tight on the pictures......... my digital camera is on the fritz.......... it puts out 12V DC from a regular wall socket......... I don't know what you mean by a clean 12V....... when i put a voltimeter on it , it registers over 12 Volts........ I have images of other supplies ive sold..... they are not exactly the same cases as you would get, but pretty much exact.............

These are typical computer power supplies.
Looks like somebody has installed binding posts on them for the 12 volts output, instead of taping off of the typical black and yellow wires (which are used for powering the disk drives) (the black and red wires supply +5 volts)
Since these supplies have been opened and reworked by (the user) the CSA approval will no longer be vaild. But who the heck cares, as long as the guy has done a proper job and you won't get fried some day.
While we are on this subject, these power supplies are VERY dangerous inside. They are "switching" power supplies and have extremely high voltages on some of the transformers inside. Take lots of caution if you open them up to snoop around inside. DON'T do it with the A/C plugged in !!
I use one of these supplies to power my Dymond Super Turbo battery "maintenace" system. (this is an excellent charger /discharger / cycler)
I wired the DC input on my Turbo with a mating connector to the standard connector on the PC power supply. (remember, black / yellow = +12volts)
I also have a DC cable with the same type of connector on the end as is on the PC power supply. When I go on the road I can use my Dymond Super Turbo in the car. Works like a champ !
