Convert an ATX Power Supply Into a Regular DC Power Supply!
Atx is not fabricate to use it as regulated power supply, it contain IC to contol underload or overload current, see links http://hackaday.com/2013/08/30/disabling-underover... http://planetimming.com/atx_mod/atx_mod.htmlbut you can use it, after some modification :1. connect black with green to run it.2.connect load (resistor 10W 5,0oms) in any red wire to stabilise all other outputs.

Build a 4 x AA USB Altoids Battery
Is there any way to get a higher voltage out? I would love to get 24 and higher.How do you determine which bundles connect to which rail? Could a potentiometer, mini multimeter and an ammeter be added without too much more effort?

Hi,Are you using standard binding posts? The cheap ones aren't rated for the maximum amperage of the PSU. Is it OK to use any old post?
Could we used this PSU for car battery charging? If not, what does we need to enable that?
HelloI have an old power supply from a LinotronicRIP50 that is not working.The power outputs are 12V (6 amp) and 5.1v (20 amp) would I be able to use a modern psu? - AndyM167
why it will give 17+ V instead of 15.3V?
Yes. Amps kill, not voltage. So long as you don't have it plugged in while working on it you're fine. Once work is done and cover back on, these are well grounded and safe.
Last one working so well I made another from a unit that came bundled with a case I bought. Lack of pci'e connectors made it useless for my pc.
How to get your iPod to charge with your homemade charger.
I made mine some time ago, using an old PC cd-rom and car amplifier and added two usb from an old motherboard, looks ugly but it does the job
nope not enough voltage .....i wouldnt stand and pee on it holding a cold water pipe tho either ....gettiing ur hands across a 12 v car battery makes a burning sensation at 12 v ....if u have alot of cuts on ur hands then u could have a problem ...a guy in a junk yard carrying a half dead car battery fell down both hand on the terminals they determined 6v and half an amp stopped his heart ...thats blood contact ...but if ur at the work bench dont worry much about it ..just watch the sparks when u mess up
i solve my problem by connecting sensing voltage wire(brown) to 3.3v rail.
