More specs needed :)

If you are charging 48V lead acid batteries, then I think you need a 56V, current limited supply

What sort of current are you looking for ?

I assume you want 230V AC mains power

Something like ebay 284445203343 - find some reviews before purchasing !

Or maybe an older HP lab PSU - do you have a forklift license ??
