The Charger Prototype

Ok, so I setup the charger prototype and it worked! I used hard drives to regulate the 5 volt line, and to keep a constant load for the ATX switching power supplies to stay on. I am going to get some 10 Ohm 10 watt resistors to regulate the power better and get closer to the 12 volts per ATX PSU. With both power supplies in series, I got 22.75 volts, only 1.25 volts off from the 24v, which is pretty good for only being a prototype.

I took a video, but I didn't get any fireworks, so I don't think I will upload it yet. I will keep it on my files in case I decided to make a DVD out of this conversion.
