  • Test Bench Power Supply

    I am in the process of firing up my first carpc build and have it assembled but I would like to get it running on my test bench before I start wiring it in my car. Can I use something like this....

    It's a 25A power supply and it's putting out 13.4V so I can't think of any reason I can't use it but I figured I would ask as I have never done a DC power build like this before. I am assuming I attach the red power lead to red positive terminal on the supply and the black ground to the negative on the bench supply?

    It sounds like the output is correct however I would be tempted to throw a small battery into the equation just to ensure the supply of DC is clean. I am running a couple lawn tractor batteries I had lying around with a battery charger trickle charging when necessary. It's been running on and off for a couple of months on my bench with no issues.
