Mr. Dabrowski sells grid chargers, afaik. Your alternative is to build it yourself, which is well within the reach of anyone who can install MIMA.

Wire the four power supplies in series using the power supplies' screw terminals, attach a fuse and a diode at the positive terminal, attach the 12V power supply, and it's ready to install. Here are pictures of a grid charger. Feel free to ask specific questions there.

I created this thread hoping that more people would DIY. As long as you are (very) careful around the high voltage, you can service and modify your own hybrid.
