I'm looking for a reasonably priced power source for my track. I had it powered by one wall wort per lane. One of them has stopped working. Should I just buy a wall wort on ebay or is there a better alternative out there?
I'm using a 13.8volt 8amp pro power supply for my 4 lanes track (so I have 2amp by lanes). A BIG difference of performance with my old 4 tyco wall packs.
Even if you loose some volts, the amperes gain is very good for several motors. Tjets, for example. You'll see that a tjet (autoworld/JL repro) will run much better with more amps than the standard 400-500mA of the wall warts. Motors are betted feeded, I guess.
It's good for magnetless cars too, but magnet cars I run (440x2, tomy turbo) stills competitive and fun (even with silicon tires, the cars still able to deslot, you have to drive it).
