My new years resolution will be "stick with the same car for 12 months" I guess it would be pretty hard to do that with Tamiya. Anyway back to VWO's problem

Maybe my friend has the scariest story of this PSU. When he connect the power cable, there's a big electrical spark and then turned off the whole electricity of his house. Sent the unit for a repair to a guy, but nothing.

The MM unit is basically a converted computer power supply with a pretty metal case. You can get a 300W or 350W fairly cheap for around USD35. If you hookup 2 chargers or run dyno, the unit will last for about a year if you are lucky. Computers draw current a bit different than chargers, computers don't really draw that much current for 40-50 minutes straight.

This statement is very serious, if you are right!! Can you back it up? have you ever own one and compare the 2 power supplies??

By the way I have mine for more than a year and most of the times there are 3 chargers drawing 6A each without any problem at all!!

One thing for sure, it's a converted computer power supply. Other than that, time will tell. Happy new year.

whether it is a computer PS, doesnt make it crap, some peoples computers will draw more amps than you ever will with 3 chargers and accessories going at once.
