Phil,

I have 2 and have had zero issues with them. Shipping time is the only draw back, but at this price I ordered 2 more.

The very same power supply has been rebadged by a couple of sellers in the USA and sell for more than twice the Chinese price. :(

 

Go figure.

I also got one that came with a European plug about a year ago. Great unit. I use it to run my Hudy.

Thanks everyone.

 

Well heck. They had a few available when I looked at it this morning. Now they're sold out. I'll keep checking.

 

PS: They might as well take orders even when they're not in stock. They take forever to ship them anyway.

It's not worth repairing at that price---just order another one.  BTW-- I paid $50 for my first one---and it's STILL a great deal!!! I've put the website with the power supply on my wish list. If I can get more at that price--I'm going to order them.

I have one of these units and just want to set the record straight.
It is designed so that shorted leads won't cause damage to the unit.
You can connect the leads together and the voltage will quit rising when the amperage gets to whatever limit you have it set at (max. 10 A).
 
The V and A settings are limits.  
If the green light is on, the unit is controlling to the voltage limit.  The amber light on means it's controlling to the amperage limit.

This is a 30V supply. Not sure if that is a viable option. Not sure that the auction isn't a scam. But eBay buyer protection really works, so for $30, what the heck, I bought one. The most I can lose is my time: https://www.ebay.com/itm/162405105446

That was indeed a scam. I received a refund from PayPal today.

160W 16V 10A Precision Adjustable DC Digital Switching Power Supply 110V 220V AC                     Here's the current Ebay ad I found for these power supplies!! Even at $76 there a great deal.  Watch eBay for other brokers--they go for $50 and under on occasion!!
