Default 6.3 at 50A

How about a modded PSU from a computer?
These have high current DC 5v supplies, if modded could be run at 6.3 possibly......

i think you would have to re design the whole Com SMPS.

most don`t an output capability anywhere near 6.3v.


well, i saw a 7.2v 35ampere SMPS at a surplus shop the day before. i wonder if you can find this sorta things where you reside.

you can usualy get 6.3v out of a comp psu by adjusting the duty cycle

their current output would range from 15 amps to 50 amps, depending on brand and such

problem being that the smoothing caps are all rated 6.3v. i wonder if it is possible to increase the voltage with the turn of a simple pot?
