I’m sure many of you are also running into the problem of how to charge your batteries at home using 240V (oops I meant 220V) ... Well I recently said goodbye to my long serving PC power supply to smoke heaven after trying to get too many amps out of it ...yes people they can not do more than 20A ...the result will be ..Smoke ...

Time for a new one ... After a lot of reading I stumbled across this one at bidorbuy ..."COMPAQ ESP114 SERVER POWER SUPPLY"
ess114 Power Supply conversion



wow , R450 with real good specs ... R80 rand for courier fees and 3days later I had the supply in hand ...

ess114 specs




Well if I sound clever I'm not , all the pages I read said you want high watts with high Amps ... so , 800Watt max and 55A at 12Volt ...AND a website to tell you how to convert this power supply ...Getting a Compaq HP DL580 Proliant Server Power Supply to Work






hey , this was suppose to be a new supply "THIS ITEM IS NEW AND IN ITS ORIGINAL PACKAGING." ..look at that ! bend ! Out of the box ! and no the box is fine ... This doesn’t matter really to me , but if you needed this supply for a Server , then I think you would be a bit "de bliksem in "
