  • sourcing AC-DC power supply localy

    Anyone have a suggestion of where i may localy source a basic AC-DC power supply to bench test my car PC?

    Id rather not pay the shipping as well as i would like to have it in the next couple of days.

    also any ideas on what things laying around might utilize this that i could barrow from that would be running 12 volts at a decent amp

    If you live in the US, Radio Shack sells AC-DC power supplies in the 10 amp range.

      I wasnt able to find any on the site other than a 70 W one that was a hundred dollars. A little steep for my taste.

        I use an ATX power supply to run my M4-atx in the house. Google will show you how to "fool" the atx power supply to stay on and I just made a harness to connect a molex connector to the wires on my M4. It works great and does not hurt the power supply.

          There's a full writeup on how to bench-test your carPC in the FAQ section: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/advfaq.php
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

            DarquePervert thank you.
            I had seen that before but i couldnt find it for the life of me! Because when i looked for it in the FAQ i was looking for the word bench test. HA i'm stupid...
            that works out perfect seeing as everything is coming out of a desktop tower, so i just happen to have that ATX power supply.

            =D
