Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very efficient switching regulator for powering portable devices, without generating a lot of heat, like linear regulators do. For the 12v setting, the input voltage needs to be at least 12v, as the unit is not a boost regulator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this to power my Raspberry Pi in a remote location, from a car battery. It works great, the battery lasts a week thanks to this efficient power supply. It doesn't get hot, and the voltage and amps are ample for the Pi.

Will this provide clean 9 volts to my graphic equaliser. It's on a 9v PP3 battery which only lasts a few months. Will this product be free from alternator whine if run from car 12volts instead of the battery? It's noisy when I run it direct now. Thanks.

Asked by: Raymrgee
I wouldn't be able to confirm if you would have any interference from an alternator. It's not something that these products have been tested for. You could fit ferite rings to your existing cabling to try and reduce interference though. See: http://www.maplin.co.uk/search?text=Ferite&x=0&y=0

Is there a specific reason why the tips are not reversible? My device requires 9V negative centre but the provided tips only fit one way (with +ve centre).

Asked by: IanR
This is to stop the tips being used the wrong way and causing damage to items.

The range will be 11.5v to 13.5v the item will cut out if the range is below this if its over it may cause damage to the device.
