    Power Supply A Guide to 12V PSU

    you will need a load balancer then. if the voltage from the batteries is close to the nominal voltage of your load device (motherboard, pc, etc) yes you can hook it up directly. the load balance or some kind of load source switching is required for a UPS.

    Power Supply A Guide to 12V PSU

    Batteries -> BMS ->USB-C voltage regulator module> trigger board-> device is what you’re wanting to accomplish. a simpler implementation is you just take the output from the BMS or battery and just use a regulator module. the BMS is supposed to keep the cells balance so they will use a...

    Power Supply Cheap Realan Rgeek 24Pin 12V DC 450W Output Mini ITX Pico DC-DC ATX psu

    The rgeek "450W" is more like a 250W unit. You can tell it's not engineered correctly because it uses 2x barrel connectors. Barrel connectors are limited to 10A, so 2 x 10A x 12V = 240W. I would never rate this as a "450W" as stock. You get what you pay for, especially with companies that have a...

    Production J-HACK PURE XL - 6.5L

    It would have to be enlarged to add 2x 140mm case fans. Right now the top and the GPU vents are where you can fit 120/140mm case fans. You may be able to cram a slim 120mm on the opposite side vents. There won't be a Mk2 version for a while.

    Production J-HACK PURE XL - 6.5L

    This is correct. Any of the big top down air coolers, The C14S is great, though it may be a bit of a pain to fit. Alternatively, You can also fit a standard type tower cooler, and have an intake fan where the GPU normally is, if you're using a low profile GPU or no dGPU. Air flow goes from GPU...

    Prototype J-HACK PLUGin 200X

    The 4 pin on mini fit jr is directional on the 200X. There is an IN and OUT side. The M2426 is reversible non directional. That and the external brick support are the main difference between the two.

    Prototype J-HACK PLUGin 200X

    The 200x can sustain 200w. The max rating is actually due to the number of wires I can fit powering it. The 12V rail is very robust. Spec sheet is like 25A or so, which is about 300W; but the wires derates it to 200w.
