RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

Well if I were to wanna run anohter charger off it would it drop below 12v? To be safe I just should add another resistor? Easy enough now that I know how to do it.

RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

Just picked up another resistor so will hook that up and see what volts I get then. One last thing, how do you guys measuer what amps your getting from the PS?

RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

Hrm can the grey goto the the red I have on the resistor? I tried touching it to the other reds that I cut off already [:o] but nothing happened.
The resistor was cheap, $1.75
