Question Power Supply Question

I want to set up a Triton 2 for charging LiFepo4 chemistry batteries and was wondering if a 12 volt wall wart power supply would be adequate. Opinions?? Thanks.

The Triton 2 can charge at up to 7A. You would need a really big 'wall wart' to deliver that sort of power.
You need a 12V 100W supply unit.

You're right. I realized (after I posted ) that I should read the directions. There it is, 100A.

Charger max. power is another limit that has to be taken into account.
Max_charger_current =
charger_max_power / pack_voltage
minus
some_losses_here_and_there_say_10%.
.
This current can be lower than specified charger max. current.
