  I power mine, NUC8, with a iFi iPower Plus. 15 volts and 4 amps. I have a 500GB Evo 970 M2 and a 500GB Evo 860 2.5” SSD installed. And 16 GB of RAM. The 4 amp supply runs everything with ease. No sure if 12 volt, 15 volt, or 19 volt makes any difference. 

  The iPower Plus was 70.00 which seems reasonable. Very 

  I believe a good switcher is better than a good LPS. The Plus seemed like a no brainer.

Hi @Panelhead,


Thanks. I wasn't aware of the Ipower plus. I've owned and still own a few Ipower standards I guess and they're good products for the price. That said they're nowhere near the performance of the LPS-1.2 and SPS-500 I currently have in place.


Not sure how the Ipower plus would compare but my monies on my current PSUs beating it.


Interesting product tho for those wanting 4amps at a very attractive price point.
