HW International Power Supply

Hey guys,

Just looking for a but of advice, thoughts or reviews about a HW International Power Supply.

I am looking at getting a larger charging system for some 6s batteries.
Had my eye on the Powerlabs6 or 8, and now looking for a suitable power supply.

The Revolectrix 1320W looks to be solid and good quality. Obviously compatible and recommended for these chargers.

The SkyRC eFuel 1200w 50a also looks suitable, but have read a few issues arising.

I have also stumbled over another power supply from HW International. Its a 2000w unit and is around the same price as the other two.

Can anyone offer me their thoughts on the above and if any reviews on the HW International unit.

IMO in most cases the only power supplies worth looking at are repurposed server PSUs. Nothing else comes close to the value when it comes to high power 12-24V power supplies. Lipoconnectionsolutions sells them ready to go, or you can get them for peanuts on ebay and wire them up yourself.

+1 on the server supplies.Ebay has several and you might find an Aussie seller who has them ready made,you'll need two in series for 24v output for a PL8,they are so much cheaper you might even get a Lipoconnectionsolutions unit + shipping for the same price as an efuel unit.You guys are 240v as well aren't you.

There you go 240v imput 1500watts $41.00 shipping so it lands just above a $100 bucks.
