Well I certainly wasn't hoping for spoon-fed information rather just some ideas from people who have done such things as I assumed this was a forum where people were DIY. Seems more so as I read more and more threads this is just a forum for people to sell or to suggest that people buy, not really much in the DIY world is actually happening everyone's recommendation is just to take it off the shelf.Then build your skillz up from smaller projects rather than expecting a cookbook that spoon feeds you all the details.

Pretty smooth plan. A very basic buck buck converter.Hi MattAO
I got away with a very simple charger
A transformer to drop the 230vAC to 110vAC - a bridge rectifier and capacitor pack and a JLD404 to switch it off when I got to the desired voltage
Worked fine - a bit slow (4 amps)
