NEW PRODUCT – 5V 10A switching power supply


NEW PRODUCT – 5V 10A switching power supply. This is a beefy switching supply, for when you need a lot of power! It can supply 5V DC up to 10 Amps, running from 110V or 220V power (the plug it comes with is for US/Canada/Japan but you can use any plug adapter for your country, or just replace the cable with a standard figure-8 cable)

The output connects to a 2.5mm DC plug but its a ‘springy’ type so you can use it in 2.1mm jacks as well. There’s a green LED indicator lamp as well.

These will be great for people who want to power 5V LED strips or a lot of motors for a CNC project. Using a separate supply like this can be easier than trying to modify an ATX power supply as its smaller, quieter and has a plug on it ready to go!

  • 5V up to 10A output
  • 110V-220V input
  • Comes with 2-prong US/Canada/Japan – for other countries use a basic plug adapter. 112cm (44in) long cable
  • 2.5mm output plug, but will also work with 2.1mm. 110cm (42in) long cable
  • Body size is 5.5″ x 2.4″ x 1.3″ (14cm x 6 cm x 3.3 cm
  • Weight: 0.925 lb / 420g

  1. Paul J. Ste. Marie

    Sweet! Any idea if it puts noise on the AC line? I have a 7.5V/3A MeanWell that unfortunately messes up my powerline networking.

  2. Morbidly curious – what sort of abuse can these things take? 50W is enough to melt wires ‘n start fires. Does it gracefully shut down in faced with probe slips or wiring errors?

  3. @Paul – we dont have a power line networking system so we can’t test or verify whether its compatible

    @Peterson – this power supply company makes good quality adapters & it is fused inside but of course, be careful when dealing with 50W!

  4. Awesome! Next: Do you have a mating jack for this that is actually rated for 10 A?

  5. there’s a 16V/5A connector on digikey (elsewhere https://www.google.com/search?q=2.5mm+jack) or you can cut off the cable end if you don’t want to use a barrel jack. we may check out some and stock them later too…
