Default Much More PSU's?

Has anybody used the Team Much More power supplies. I was looking at the Power Master Worlds Edition 2 (24A Blue). If so I'm wondering what you have been using them for, and also does anybody have better pictures than on their website being used at the track.

Thanks
RH

I have that power supply and it's very compact so it saves you lots of space at the track. I use it for my charger, Motor Master, Dischargers, motor cooler, etc. This is the best power supply that I have ever used!

Default MM PSU

Go to your local Radio Shack. 25 amp supplies for $99.95. Same size, clean regulated power, local availability, half the price, and no discernable difference in performance.

I've got a couple of these and they're small, cheap, and work just fine.

Well that is the only reason I do like the Much More power supplies, the y do look cool. But man oh man they are expensive. The Radio Shack one's are built really good. So I'm not sure what power supply I should get. Currently I'm running a Integy 10 amp/13 amp max psu, and it has ran flawless for over 5 years now, and still goint strong.

Except for the price

Anyway if you can spend the money it really is well spent money. It's small and works really well. Just a bit overpriced though.

yes i have, i purchased the Much More CTX Tire Warmers, very good service and speedy delievery, but the only difference with the new model is the amperage and the auto swtiching for imput of 110/220 power, the old unit works just fine, so personally i dont think you need the newer version, and if your not traveling to europe for races dont worry about and vice versa..

The much more power supply unit is great. 24 amps is more than enough to supply two charges plus the motor master unit, with amps to spare. I bought the blue unit - sweet looking. It is quite a bit smaller than the CE unit. Yes, like all much more stuff, it is on the high end of the price range, but it seems that you get what you pay for, and you pay a premium for small and compact units. I know that when I fly to a race, with the 50# limit on most airlines, every opportunity for small and light is important.

I would go with Nexus racing (www.nexusracing.net) for US source - very quick shipping, local contact if something goes wrong. (I also purchased a much more charger from them that was defective, they arranged for a replacement to me within a week).

If you are looking for a power distribution box, very similar to the one made by much more, check out the new integy unit - almost just as nice at half the price. http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...4&I=LXLWE5&P=K

Default a big yes

i own 2 mm chargers a mm motor master the power block and a mm power master.

i can honestly say the much more line of products are hands down the best. you pay more for size in the r/c world . much more ranks near the top of the list when it comes to electronic items.

RH,

Over 5 years of flawless service from your current power supply? That's fantastic! I'd be inclinded to keep running that. Sounds perfect!

...however, if you really want that bling factor go ahead and spoil yourself with the much more. They look great and mine's worked flawlessly for over a year.
