Revierse polarity – Hobbywing 5V/6V 3A Switch-Mode Ultimate BEC (UBEC) Reviews

posted by matthewgouge1 on 07/16/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
-Small and lightweight - 5.18v output - good quality - easy to install -
Cons:
polarity was reversed!!! I had to check with a voltmeter, but the voltage was definitely reversed... good thing my equipment had a reverse polarity protection!
Other:
not bad, does what it says although voltage was reversed it is not a hard fix by just cutting and re-soldering the wires
Bottomline:
get it, but if you have a sensitive receiver or whatever else you need to power be careful. Nothing else to say really, works (somewhat) as advertized
