Glad you got it working, sometimes these power supplys will sence what they think is a short and will pop a internal breaker, just leave it unplugged for a few mins, and it will reset its self, Take care and have fun, Chellie

Awesome find, got mine in the mail today and had it converted in 10 minutes.

I used 4 yellow and 4 black for the main charge leads and a 1157 tail light for the trigger (soldered across to both filaments). Both the single gray and single green to ground (PG and PS ON) and its good to go.

No more charger hooked to car battery hooked to car battery charger!

Default Variable Power supply

Hi All;
My old computer PS has been charging my batteries for a couple of years.
I am doing some Motor testing, I built a thrust stand and I am using an Eagle tree data logger. I am using the batteries out of my boat 2S and 3S 5000mAh for testing.
I have an industrial 24V power supply, it is adjustable but only down to around 17V. I want to get 7.4V and11.1V, 14.8V, 22.2V out of it for the test stand testing. It would be fine if I had to turn a knob and watch a VOM to get what I want out of it.
Anybody got a schematic and parts list, I can probably build it.
About 40 years ago I was a repair person for those big 50,000 Watt radio transmitters.
If you got this far, Thanks for reading;
John

the webpage said to solder a connection between power good (orange) and +5v (red). i didnt do this on my first one, and i am working on a second one and just saw this, what is it supposed to be for. when i put a red to orange it got extremely hot and shorted out the PS.
