Hey all,

I know this is nothing new to use HP server power supplies(DPS-600pb) since they are a lot cheaper. I picked up some and wanted to know of those of you that use them how you converted the end metal prongs to solder in or use a banana plug/ other connection. Soldering as is might be a little hard and I think I might choke off current flow and cause heat by trying to put a tinned 12-14 gauge in. Have a progressive RC pelican case and it would be impossible if the banana plugs went out and not 90 degree.

Thanks

-Cody

Hey Cody,

I have 2 HP 1200 series (don't remember right off) supplies. I used 8 gauge wire on the output connectors.

For my dps 600's I used female 4mm bullet connectors to receive the 4mm banana plugs from my chargers. I solder the female bullets in between the two hot swap connectors and then put heat shrink on the bullets to insulate them. I have even solderd in two pairs of bullet connectors to power two chargers simultaneously.
