    I'm going with a second battery so I can just leave my computer on when I get out of my car so I can connect to it via my network in the house and fool with it Plus I've already dreamed of pulling up to my friends house at a LAN party and terminal serving into my car to host a Quake 3 server for everyone That would just be funny as hell.

    Wow... that text sure reminds me of all the spam I get daily. Also, as 16A x 12V = 192W, he's getting something like 104% efficiency, which is not bad at all...

    It seems to me that the last great PSU AudioForge was hawking on eBay was the PW-120 which was nothing more than a restamped Mini-Box PW-70A and somehow they managed to get another 20 Watts out of it by restamping it....

    So maybe this PW-200 is just a restamped Mini-Box PW-80 and they really did some good stamping and added another 120 watts...... I just don't trust AudioForge... just always struck me as "not right" and shady....

    As dieselBenz pointed out, ever taking their numbers as fact, they are running at 104% effiecency.... their designer should be Billonaires here pretty soon and OPEC will be a distant memory

    But, please let us know how it works out for you.... prove me wrong... I will buy one...

    Wow, wait a minute... AudioForge is a member here, huh? I think.... From AudioForge's "Other Auctions" there is an auction for an ITPS and about 1/2 way done that eBay listing is a link for a "Complete Wiring Diagram".... I looked at it and I have seen a portion of that same drawing posted here.....

    I hope I don't get into another flame war....

    I saw this auction before anyone mentioned it here. Was going to wait but then I bought it since everyone was buying and didn't want to miss out. It will be interesting to find out what exactly this is. However looking at the pictures it looks nothing like the PW-80. This one is smaller, maybe they got them from somewhere else that just started making them. Or the picture is wrong. Who knows, but we will all find out shortly. Too bad I don't have a Motherboard for it yet!

    Some of you guys need to take basic electricity. If you dont think 200W is alot, hold it to your nose. And when companies list wattage, its usally peak wattage, which means it cant do it forever. If you need 100w get something that puts out AT LEAST 50% more if not double.

    If its worth doing, it worth doing right!

    Did you take any electronics classes? That is like the first thing they tell you not to do.

    Also, I know its a small point, but worth mentioning, a hydraulic motor uses fluid to drive it, not electricity
    Hydraulic motors don't require electricity?

    I wonder why I had to put 8 batteries in my trunk to run my hydraulics.....

    Hydraulic motors use electricity to drive fluid.

    That would be an electric motor driving a hydraulic pump.

    A hydraulic motor is a motor that is driven hydraulically.
