see if you can find 3 pieces of the UM2702 (Universal Microelectronics)Originally Posted by hcker2000
each puts out about 1.25A. it retails for 18 SGD (about 10USD) each in singapore.
that's the easiers way for me so far. I used it to power devices that are too far from the PSU to be run the power cable. I hacked the USB cable to run 12V through it (on both end) and run one of these babies to give me instant 12V & 5V. 5V sees too much drop when you run it through long USB cables.
