Danger Power Supply


Recommended Posts

Available on ebay for aprox $10 each.

Just a heads up on these cheap Chinese power supplies in case you were thinking of using them on any projects.

As on any cost cutting cheap product, Components are minimal and often run hot which causes failure.

Beware, When these fail they cause a short across the mains which is quite spectacular.

I had two fail (spectacularly) before I realized a bad diode was shorting the 5v line.
