    Power Up Opus Inside The House

    Could you just tape the 12v rail of a regular dc-dc power supply to power up the opus in the house?

    depends on how many amps that your regular ps put's out, it would be better to go buy a dedicated 12v power supply if you want to do that though

    Radio Shack sells a 12v supply.

    You could build one, just a transformer and a rectifier, (did I spell that right) It wouldnt be very clean, but a dc to dc supply would clean it up fine. Thats all thats in the car charger anyway.... probably save some $$

    How many amps can your charger supply?

    Find an AT PSU. They make great bench supplies.

    Didn't I read somewhere that AT power supplies can explode if not connected to a load?

    I think it was my A+ certification book that I read in 1999

    Never heard that one. AT supplies do NEED a load to power up, on the +5 rail. I've been using two for bench supplies for years. I've never had a problem. Both my AT PSUs have 10A on the 12+ rail, just the right amount to power my Keypower and other projects.
