MegaWatt Power supplies customer service!

Post by Flapjack » Friday, 22 March 2013, 21:01 PM

The following Is my personal experience with them.

I called Megawatt Power supplies on Tuesday and complained that regulation of the power supply that I bought in June of 2012 was getting unstable under load.(400 Watt model) We discussed the issue and decided I needed a new power supply plus an additional new one and a diode isolator. (These power supplies are smaller than a carton of cigarettes.)

The diode isolator couples the two supplies together, but they remain independent and utilize their own regulation circuits. According to the directions you must adjust the Voltage to within .1 volts of each other, it is easy if you have a light touch. The prices are better than you would expect for technology these contain. The diode isolator cost less than what you could build one for. The heatsink is included and the circuits are potted in a epoxy compound. These come with the power cord and a inline rocker power switch.
The new power supply and the isolator cost $105.00 U.S. Dollars shipping included.

It is Thursday and I have all of my new gear in hand. The supply that failed had a two year warranty
and they honored it without question. That my friends is customer service. The power supply I sent
back may not have been defective, it is possible that the RF power amplifier I was working on may
have been influencing the regulator circuit.

The new systems are hooked up functioning flawlessly. I have continued working on the same system I
was working on when the other supply started drifting. So far they are rock solid and neither power supply is drifting.

Would I buy more of these in the future? Absolutely!

I rate these power supplies five out of five.

I had asked the company to become sponsors of the site. I told him he would get a lot of exposure for just a little cash. He seemed agreeable but I don't know if he did or not. I like writting reviews like that,
most are simple and direct. I still end up writting books for post though.

Was considering one of those maga watt 50 amp before I got my pyramid 30 amp for powering up my box.
