I know these are DC to DC power supplies. Do these have cables that run all the way to the battery, or do they hook into a cigarette lighter? That would be the best setup IMO, simple to do. Also, do they get any larger than 150w?

More appropriately, run a fused lead wire from your positive battery terminal and bolt the other lead to a ground point near the power supply (any solid metal part of your car).Originally Posted by freestyler
The ITPS is not a DC-DC PSU itself, it is a shutdown controller/voltage regulator addon for PSUs that don't have that functionality.Originally Posted by Providence
