AC-DC for use with the Mini?

Now that the Dynamo Mini seems to be available (or proximately will be), I'm wondering about an AC-DC unit to pair with it. I know that the HDPlex 160 AC-DC should work fine- but it doesn't seem to be available. Are there any suitable replacements, or should I be trying to find out if someone is willing to pat with a used on?

Dell 240W AC-DC brick is great as an external. If you need a 160W AC-DC I have a couple extra I can sell as well.

Hi, how about internal AC-DC for the Dynamo Mini 200W?
Thanks.

160W AC-DC from HDPlex is your best bet for an internal brick if 160W is sufficient. If you need closer to 200W and are comfortable with open frame power supplies then I recommend the Meanwell EPP-200-24 or UHP-200-24 units.

Thanks for the info.
I like the UHP-200-24, it has an interesting size too: 194 mm x 55 mm x 26 mm
But it doesn't fit in the case I have atm.
I like this line of AC-DC though, really interesting.

As per the EPP-200-24, as far as you know, is there a way to have at least a base or an U to house it?
From the specs this is another great AC-DC converter but you need to have a vent to reach 200W and the 300W/400W options are too big again being 76mm one side.
I have a Modivio 3D printed case and just dropping it onto the black acrylic side panel doesn't quite make sense.

I could couple your Dynamo 200W with one of these solutions but it's not coming together...yet.

The Mean Well RPS-200-24-C is the same as the EPP but with the frame you're looking for. I'm using the 12v version of this with a 160W PicoPSU and it runs fine without active cooling and just passive case fan cooling.

Thanks a lot!
I have been looking at Mean Well web site today and basically the RPS-200-24-C is what I was looking for.
I could get the Dynamo 200W + the RPS-200-24-C
Still 100Eu at the end for 200W...

PMed but no response- any chance you still have a spare hdplex 160 ac-dc available?

Can I use a DELL brick rated 19.5V x 10A = 195W with Dynamo mini? I am planning to setup a TDP 65W CPU without GPU. Would Dynamo mini suffice?

Yep. That will have more than enough capacity to run any GPU-less system. With the 65W CPU you could probably add a 1060 to that system and still be fine.

I'd like to run a GPU. However, I got the Realan H80 Mini ITX casing which unfortunately only has a 10cm height clearance. I couldn't find any low profile GPU to fit. I am now leaning over to AMD Ryzen 2200G which comes with built-in GPU.
