Default Power supply

I am looking for a good power supply to power my battery charger from ac to dc. Does anyone have the specs for one that would be good to use out of a pc? I checked New Egg and Fry's, there is too many to make a decision.

Need to know the specs you want for your particular charger and job. Many times a pc supply is quite over-rated or the power is all added up and we can only use the 12 v + rail. Many times that is enough though so it depends on your requirements.

As a 'general' middle-of-the-road AC wall outlet (12VDC 4-5A) charger should suffice for most parkflyers. Always better to get more amperage than you need. Even though you may never be charging anything with more than 3300mAh capacity you need the extrp cushion so it doesn't overheat during 60 minutes of charging.
