Can I use an ATX PSU as a fast charging station?

An ATX form factor PSU outputs 3.3, 5.0 and 12.0 VDC and you make no mention of what battery chemistry you are charging. Some batteries require a controlled charge or you risk fire or expulsion. A 12 volt SLA battery requires greater than 12 volts to charge. As mentioned, depends on exactly what you are trying to do. Do it wrong and things get very ugly very fast.
