well that charger puts out 5 amp max so if you only plan to use just that charger then you could get a 8 amp supply like this one,

or 1 of these 10 amp ones then you could connect 2 chargers,

great seller and charger

or you could get one of these 20 amp ones then you will have enough power for another say 2 chargers, 1 cooling stand etc,

i use the latter and have 2 chargers, a cooling stand and a light and a tyre truer connected at once
