    6 Amp+ 5V power supply. In UK?

    Hey guys,
    I need a 5volt power supply for my usb hubs (x2), my external usb hdd and a slot-load dvd in the dash.
    I reckon i need about 6 Amps.
    Is anything like this available in the uk?
    I am running a laptop based setup so would rather have a stand-alone supply than have to modifie an atx psu thing..

    The closest I have come is those 'universal' type things that plug into the lighter socket for powering walkmans etc. These give about 2Amps but closest voltage is 4.5V or 6V. I could give them a go as they are under £10 so I could just wire 3 in parralell or one to each hub/device?
    Cheers!

    Texas Instruments ISR PT6625 should do what you want.
