  • Does not produce 5 amps

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Descent build quality, Open circuit it outputs 12.5 volts. Has overload protection, resets if overloaded instead of becoming a paper weight. When loaded it only generates a modest amount of heat.

    Cons:

    It does not output 5 amps as advertised, only produces 3-4amps before shutting down. As stated above, overloading does not smoke the unit, which would make it a "do not buy".

    OtherThoughts:

    I plan to use this to power LED strips for under cabinet lighting, which should be fine. Will need to

    Bottomline:

    Ok for price, so long as you only need 3amps.
