  • Carnetix PSU 1260 60W - UK purchasers

    Hi All

    Specifically to the UK readers, has anyone ordered this PSU from carnetix (works out at 45-50) and had it delivered? It seems much better than an itps, and cheaper than an opus.....

    If so, did you have to pay import tax on it when it arrived? Basically, I really want to order one, but dont want a hefty import tax added to the price when it arrives.

    Please let me know.

    Many thanks indeed guys!

    If the market is big enough over there, order a slew of them and start your own little side business with a minimal markup

      to be totally honest, i dont think the market over here is that big. However, import tax would be huge with large orders.

            Hi Folks,

            not from the UK but I did get one and have had no problems with it whatsoever. It has worked out really well for me. I'll answer any questions about the PS I can.

              just ordered one for 54 but I fink his web site got the wrong postage? It was only $13, that can't be right.

              I'll let you know how things turn out.

                    i'm reading this

                    Only just bought an opus 6 days ago

                    Is this PSU intergrated with a shutdown controller as well ? Have you got any links? I have seen threads about this a lot but didn't really care about it then but you seem to be quite satisfied so that made me intersted for a version 3 carputer for my dad's car

                        We ship USPS airmail to the UK and it generally takes 5-7 days. Typical postage is $10-$14USD depending upon location and options ordered.

                        We'll be shipping your orders early next week as we are on holiday this week.

                          Do you ship to Australia? And if so, how much? Mini-Box (or whatever) wanted $51USD to ship a PW60 here!!!

                              Am I correct when I think you still need a Morex or a PW70 to use this?
                              It's just a regulated 12v supply, right?
