    1) It's 48v input. Your car has 10-18v input range.
    2) You can get better units with more features (such as a startup/shutdown controller) right now for about the same price.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I accidently copied the URL for the other one, I meant to post the 12V input.

    Does the OPUS PS look like this also? Can someone post a pic of the OPUS actual unit?

    How do you get power, ground, and isnt there a 3rd connection needed for the PS? Do you just literally take power from battery and wire it to the clip, ground to clip, etc.?

    That is what I'm looking at trying to see. I've seen that pic before (thank you) I want to see how people actually hooked it up.

    Well I have already seen diagrams like that before, and I understand how that works, I just want to see pictures of the actual connectors at the point for the power, ground, igntion from car to power supply. Like, how do they wire it into that "molex" connector?
