Default Novak N-Power Question

I just bought a Novak N-Power power supply and I've noticed that while charging the first pack the internal fan hasn't turned on. Other than that it seems to be working fine and it's only gotten slightly warm thus far. Is the fan on a thermostat and does it only run when the power supply reaches a certain temp, or should it be running all the time??

Mine always runs as it is connected directly to the output of the PS.

So you're saying that as soon as you turn the power supply on the internal fan starts running?

The fan should always run when you turn it on.

Dang, that means I got a defective PS. Guess I'll return it.

You have the newer unit...the fan turns on only when needed.

Drop them an email at http://www.teamnovak.com/ to ask maybe.

MillPro & Ionic both supposedly have temp-dependent fans.

My N-Power's fan only comes on when charging.
