      It will probably draw more amps than the charger puts out, a normal charger puts out 2 amps on slow charge and 10 amps on normal charge. A 120V power converter to 12V is what the pawn shops use to test power amps hooked to speakers.

      I wouldn’t recommend this because a charger isn’t a power supply and it’s not regulated.
      Buy a small, regulated 12 volt converter from Radio Shack or a similar retailer. Check your amp for the power consumed and make sure the converter is up to the task.
