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".
Other:
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.
