I've been looking for some information on converting computer power supplies for using as a power supply for a charging system.
I've only found this so far Wikipedia
Can anyone find any more info on it?
The help would be very much appreciated! thumbup.gif

Hey Johnny,

As i was saying at the field the yellow wires are your +12v and black is obvious the ground, but the green and gray wires are used for the switch. As for the fan, I'm not sure. dontknow.gif Maybe, someone else will know about that.

Here is a pic to help you out.

Hey Russell!
You think you can look for one or several that has 8 amps or more rating, then see if any have the green wire in the connectors? thumbup.gif
the one I have doesn't have a green wire in it xcept for ground.
All the drawings refer to this green wire! wacko.gif blink.gif
