I will bring it Friday

Hope that helps

Rather than slag each other off, couldn't you just make some constructive comments or ask for ideas...

Do you have a printer, laptop, or other similar device that has a 12v power requirement? they often have a power supply you could use, albeit at a lower current ....
or a car parked on the drive you could 'borrow' a 12v battery out of?

Have you got a dead computer laying around anywhere? If so, the power supply in that can be used with a bit of modification:

All the bits can be had from Maplins or RS and will be a good project if you're not doing much at the moment.

Or you could do a google seach for Fusion 100w power supply, available for less than £20 and with 8 amp output is ok for charging lipos as you wont need anything near that.
If you are stuck for Friday, I'll bring my Ripmax dual output (available for about £50)
