EOS0615 DUO3 needs more than 14.5V to give you the full 180W per port. I'm afraid you'll be getting less from that charger if using a 12V power supply.

Right but it only drops output by about 12%. So it depends on what your charging whether or not 12V input has an effect. For example if you only need 100W out of the charger 12V input is fine.

If y'all look in my blog I show how to get 24V. I have 4 Duos and charge 6S 5,000 packs from time to time so 24V is handy.

Same here. I have 2 to convert, hopefully today, but need to know what pins to short...

I did not understand the a1 and d3 in post #8 above.

To make searches easier for others I will put all label info here.

The label shows:
Model: ARTESYN 7000758 - 0000 REV A.
FRU P/N 7000758 - 0002
IBM P/N: 49P2166
IBM FRU P/N: 49P2167
EC NO.: H22799T

Input:
120V - 7 A (Amps)
220V - 3.5 A (Amps)

Output:
+12V 42A
+5V 2.0A
Maximum continuous output is 514 watts.

Should be the same for the IBM X345 as the pictures above looks the same as my unit.
Place the power supply as shown in picture above.
Top row, third pin from left (PIN3) will tie with the bottom left pin, the short pin (PIN13).
I have not put a load on it yet but the 12V DC is active and the green DC LED on the front lights up. Also, the fan runs slow at all times 120V / 240 volts is applied but it speeds up some when these pins are tied together.

Seems to be a nice PS because of size, weight and output of 12V@42A and 5V@2A with up to 514W output.

To me it's not clear where the pins needs to become shortened. Counting from where? Can you supply a foto?

Has anybody modified this PSU to bind two units together for 24V?

Is it possible to add some electronics to fetch other voltage as well in order to use this as a more universal power source?

I got two of these from feathermerchant a while back and previously was floating the AC ground to run 24V but just modified it using some instructions from him to isolate the DC side instead. Here's the instructions:

The pins to short are in the little grid on the back to the side of the main connections. I would have to look at it when I get home to see which pins are shorted and compare to what someone gave above.

As for other voltages these are really designed to just be 12V supplies mostly I think. That's the advantage over a desktop power supply.

Thanks a lot! I hope to see the picture from yours to find the right pins as well.

I'll stress this mod is not for the unskilled. Highly recommend using a good flux to solder to the trace as getting it to stick is extremely difficult and though it doesn't look that cramped it suddenly gets smaller when you try and stick a soldering iron in there.

Could you please tell me which pins you have connected? I can only see that one is the third from left in the upper line. Which one is the another pin.

Thanks!

Edit:

Got it: Top row, third pin from left (PIN3) will tie with the bottom left pin, the short pin (PIN13).
