        Comments about RadioShack® 13.8VDC 15A Power Supply:

        I hooked it up to a battery, with alligator clips for a while then I wanted to do a more solid permanent connection, and somehow when hooking back up, I connected it backwards.

        After a few seconds, pop! Capacitor blew out, BUT THE FUSE DID NOT BLOW.

        Store didnt want to know.

            I use this for a 10 amp LIPO charger - for 2S 5000mah 3C batteries. Max charge rate I use is 5amps @ 8.4V - dont care what batteries claim - this keeps them in good shape. This charger stays cool and is very reliable! Good product Radio Shack!

            Best Uses

              Comments about RadioShack® 13.8VDC 15A Power Supply:

              I was wary of buying a switching power supply because they are notorious for generating RF noise, but I detect none from this one. Voltage regulation and hum level are very acceptable, and it powers my amateur transceiver and amplifier very satisfactorily. It also costs about half as much as a comparable linear supply with marginally better performance. Yes, having meters would be nice, but at the price I would recommend it to anyone.

                  Comments about RadioShack® 13.8VDC 15A Power Supply:

                  Amoung other things, I purchased this to power an Optimus 100 Watt 15" sub with a Kenwood 250 Watt amp. I had a 60 Hz hum in the speaker at first. After much trouble shooting I discovered that the outlet had no ground wire in it (old house). Once I plugged it into a correctly wired outlet I had no more noise. The sub would occasionally knockout my bulky old 10A supply, but I've had no trouble with this one. The voltage output has proven more reliable then my old supply which would decrease with current draw. This 15A supply will power three 55Watt automotive lamps (165 watts), with some hesitation when first turned on. My only disappointment is that it lacks the cigarette lighter socket that my 10A power supply has.

                    I bought this for my shack and it trips whenever I attempt to transmit on my radio's high setting. (50 watts). Works fine on lower power settings. I tried my radio on a friends psu (same as mine) and it worked fine, even on high. Looks like I'm going back to the store to exchange this one for another.
