Nevada PS-08 6-8A Regulated Linear Power Supply

Purchased this to supply power to my eq5 goto mount and dew control system instead of using my battery pack. Works great. No more worrying about battery pack running down.

Great 12V supply at a great price

Just as the title a nice 12V power supply that will happily supply all your needs up to 5A which I think is ample for most setups. I say 5A because that is what the cigarette lighter socket is rated at. The power supply is rated at 6A (8A Surge) but to get that extra 1A means connecting to the terminals whereas the socket is much handier setup and personally do not like running supplies to their maximum rated output as I think it shortens their life (my personal opinion as an electronics engineer). It is heavy and really I would not recommend for use outdoors but great for use in an observatory or skylight setup.

Very sturdy. Works well.

It has one function and it does it very well. It feels solid and capable and so far it has worked flawlessly.
This type of unit is not that commonly available in terms of other suppliers. I had to search out various hobbyist retailers to get something similar. FLO's price is very competitive as well.

awesome power supply
Sunday, 11 February 2018  | 

Having just had my old standard supply fail I was wondering if it was worth the extra 10 for this - yes it is.
Guiding and slewing are about the same on NEQ6Pro however this now runs the scope, 2xdew controllers and camera cooling and still draws less than 4A. It can easily support another mount if needed.
Very strong and sturdy. I now have it on a UPS for improved reliability and surge / drop protection.
If you are considering replacing a power tank or mains supply then this is a must.
BTW - Even though this is 13.8v it works great on ASI1600mmc

Nevada PS-08 6-8 A Regulated Linear Power Supply

Purchased this from FLO to provide a more powerful regulated power supply to a Celestron GGE Pro Mount to replace generic 12v DC supply. Works well so far with noticeable increase in smoothness of slewing.

Reliable Power
Wednesday, 26 July 2017  | 

Very solidly built and with the advantage of an ammeter, which showed my mount peaking at around 3 amps when slewing during testing. As I'm running a 5m cable from my conservatory this is ideal and no need to worry about batteries running down. Very reasonably priced, I would consider buying another for a dew heating kit when I get it. My only concern would be a power cut, but fortunately they are few and far between where I am. A battery backup would solve that problem if needed.
