    Sorry you feel that way. Your right though. If you like lots of electrical tape, you don't want this product.

    Uh, didn't mean to offend.

    In any case, no electrical tape is needed. You can just pick up an ATX extension cable, solder on a toggle switch, a few LEDs (if you want since they don't confirm much except that 'some' kind of power is being supplied), and whatever kind of connectors suit your fancy. I'm pretty sure you can ditch the load resistors for most supplies but if you need them, it's not too hard to solder those on as well. Like I said before, this circuit does all of that and by doing so provides a minimal convenience. If the price is ~$5 it might be worth it for a few folks around here.

    Actually the relative intensity of the LEDs is useful. All LEDs put out the same brightness. If the 12v was putting out 5 you can really see it! You just can't see if the 12 is putting out 11.5v

    Thanks. Using one of the power supplies I have laying around will be much easier than configuring all of this in my truck.
