12 Volt Power supply

G'day Guys,

Can someone that knows what they are talking about have a look at this power supply & tell me if it is suitable to make into a 12 Volt power supply for my Turnigy battery charger

Thanks James ;)

You won't have much fun with this. Max output on 12V is only 1.5A means your charger will probably be limited to less than 1A and unless you only use batteries <1000mAh capacity it will take forever to charge them. Better get something that can supply at least 5A at 12V.
