Try this site for the regulator...

For durability, I would prefer the transformer type power supplies. THese can withstand occasional ovrerloads. Only bad thing about these supplies is the weight.

With switching types you have to excercise more caution to avoid overloads especially if the there's not much overload protection on the output side.
