    Newbie PS tips needed

    Hey newbie here sorry if my ignorance is annoying (I did the search feature) but my questions are:

    1. Is it possible to order a dc-dc PSU from a company such as http://www.kepcopower.com/ and have them modify it for a custom use? They seem to offer some products that have potential. If so is this affordable (less than $60)?

    2. Can you give me an estimate on the cost and time required to build one from scratch given that I have limited electronic skills?

    thanks.

    keypower will sell you a dc-dc power supply for ~$200... no modifications will be allowed.

    building a "sproggy" power supply will take you ~$50-$100 (depending on part availability) and will take probably a couple hours to build and test.

    go to the for sale section and look for dc-dc power supplies being sold by MASTERO. he has $160 commercial supplies shipped anywhere in the world...

    and PLEASE SEARCH HARDER next time. this is a very common topic.

    p.s.
    having a custom power supply built to you specific specs as a "one-off" part will probably cost you no less than $400, especially since they will have to guarantee it since it will be sold by a commercial distributor...
