I've been searching for a more integrated shack power supply solution that will let me use my portable power supply setup with grid power. Are there any provisions for fuses or would one just put in line fuses as appropriate on the outputs? I understand it lets you current limit the A and B sides Great review Julian!
Thanks for the feedback and question.
I just use inline fuses in the shack. Each individual peice of gear has its own inline fuse on its power cable. Other than that, no other requirements or provisions.
Hope this helps
Sure looks like this kind of set up should be default for all ham shacks. Because..... when the power goes out so the needs to be prepared becomes mandatory.
Totally agreed. Unfortunately the feedback on the channel suggests many operators aren't you thinking of robust power and Communications, until after they've experienced blackouts, wildfires, tornadoes or hurricanes, ...
Hopefully we can inspire a few to think about this topic.
What a fantastic setup that is, thank you for the video, chock full of great information and for sharing your extensive knowledge in your presentations. I will seek out the video of the Generator build you mentioned.
Julian, great review. Much appreciated. I'm impressed with the thinking that went into this product and will likely get one based on your review. Keep up the great work! 73
Great video! As funds allow I'm building out my shack's power system to be more robust and versatile, and this gave me some ideas.
Many hams think that their emergency power is adequate with a lead acid battery. Using the LiFePO4, in my case, 100 amps, and a couple of solar panels offers unlimited energy to the shack. If you already have some management in your shack, Buddiepole offers a solar charging controller that works pretty well also. I gave up on Lead Acid and went for the Battleborn. You get 5000+ charges and a ten year warranty. As always, your videos are great, little comment, a lot of information. Thanks
