    Opus PSU Question

    I couldn't see it in any pics, but do the Opus PSUs come with a 12v "cigarette lighter" power plug? they just say they are 12v dc, but do they come with the right plug for a car?

    No, and you wouldn't want them to. The Opus power supplies don't just take + and - from the battery, they also need an ignition line so they can handle starting up and shutting down the computer.

    You wire them to your battery in much the same way you would wire an audio amplifier.

    The steps here for wiring an amp give you an idea of what is involved.
