  • This power supply is slim and unusually attractive.

  • That white case is 39mm in diameter, and 15mm thick: pretty small for this power level (see heat sinks later).

  • The case is glued together, so you're not going to get into this one cleanly. I sawed a slot in the side, and used a screwdriver to crack the glue.

  • There's a plastic barrier between the low voltage and high voltage sides (you can't get much better than that!).

  • Pretty tight layout.

  • Note the heat sink with thermal interface material, and the landing pads for the line voltage springs.
