I see a few 180W and 250W pico psu on ebay. Anyone have experience with those? Or anyway to measure the output to make sure they are not lying?

I got my pico PSU from mini-box and the largest they have is 160w. Not to sure about the 180 or 250w or who even makes them. Also where would you get a power brick for those? After doing some searching I've only come across 200w power bricks.

I used an ebay 180w one to run an E-450 rig with a GT 430. But the brick that came with it is only rated to 120w so I can't really test its upper limit. I have measuring it working up to 100W on an Ivy Mini ITX build I used to test it.

hey, i know this is bump. I figure it's still relevant.

Doe anyone know if it's safe to bend the DC in connector on the Picopsu. I'm using in with a microserver prolian gen10, and the cable is pointing towards the chassis.

It just about clears is but it creats a harsh bend on the cable which coulc cause the cable to fail and I'd like to bend the metal contacts if possible.

I just upgraded my microserver from g7 to gen10 after 10 years - pico still going strong!.

Btw, don't buy offbrand PSUs stick to picos from the legitimate suppliers to avoid problems.
