Instead of gaining a charge per 1000 distance traveled, I'd change the mechanic to something like "checks user's position every 5 seconds and grants +1 charge if he is at least 1000 distance from where he was at the previous check"
otherwise, anyone can just run in circles while farming a lane to get a bunch of free regen.

Have you considered making the movement speed a passive that is increased by charges? This would make them more effective in the late game, as well as giving a down-side to healing yourself. Example: zephyr's cyclones can be consumed to heal him, however this makes him lose some offensive ability and he must work harder to gain it back. This would also allow for slower gankers like Devourer to buy these boots and maintain effectiveness as long as he is moving around ganking. Overall, I like the idea alot.
I like this very much. Like that it gets charges for running around.

If the item gained a charge for each 1000 distance traveled, it would be just as easy to gain charges by running in circles while solo farming a lane as by running across the map to gank. You just move constantly until a creep gets low enough to last hit.
changing it to check distance moved over a fixed time interval will help preserve the item for its intended use (by heroes that are roaming the map),
I like this idea.
Great for non-int actually. Mana boost is awesome for going top to bot and back for ganking for STR or AGI gankers.
i like it but 7.5 per charge isnt too high??
its easy to gain charge.. so its a bit OP this boot, but i like the concept, voted yes.
how about, instead of giving the item its own recipe, add ringmail to it so you can add bonus armor? Wouldn't be quite beneficial for gankers, wouldn't it?

Nome, bro, another GUD IDEA ! - by Pollywog
Proud for actually beeing one of the 10 to play the first MatchMaking game.
And for being one of the first to become a SBT.
Nome, you have great ideas (I love the Harlequin) and in general, I like the idea of combining Power Supply with Marchers, if only for the free slot it provides (Should be added to recipe benefits list maybe?). I myself get Power Supply almost every game as it's an item that saves lives countless times.
More specifically however, I have reservations about the synergy with the speed boost and power charges being activated together. In most situations when ganking you would probably want the speed boost to chase, right after or right before the initiation. In either of those cases, the HP/MP charges being activate at the same time as the speed boost feels a bit off. I guess the extra MP right after the initiation might help but i'm not sure.
In my mind, these boots actually feel more like escape boots more than ganking boots. In other words, get ganked, survive the initiation by a hair, pop the boots for instant HP and MP, run!
not voting as i think the idea of getting charges from walking is to easily abused and needs a huge nerf/change other than that the idea is ok.
As great as it is as an idea otherwise, only 55 MS? Due to the fact that this is something you'd get as a roamer, that doesn't quite comply, activated MS boost or not. I'd say make it have a decent passive MS and remove the boost.
I freaking love this item and, if implemented, would surely buy it on several heroes. Seriously.
I voted yes, but I have an issue with using Power Supply in this way. Its already a combined Item. Couldn't you use Mana Battery instead and adjust the price?
Mana Battery - 210
Marchers - 500
Bolstering Armband/Fleetfeet/Apprentice's Robe - 450
Wanderer's Boots - 300
Edit! Miss read the item:
maybe something more like
Mana Battery - 210
Marchers - 500
2x Pretenders Crown - 370
Wanderer's Boots - 380
= 1460 total
you get the idea.

Fantastic idea. I would love to see this, as I usually get Power Supply on most gankers already.
