Details

High-powered and hobby ready, with three sets of banana plug jacks and one high-current XT90 output, the S1500 is ready to power up anything you can throw at it.

An input voltage range of 90-265V makes it ready for worldwide use with no modification needed, and the DC output is just as flexible: simply turn the dial to adjust the voltage to suit your setup - digital readouts give you an instant look at your output voltage and current.

Active power factor correction and a robust frame makes this a great power supply to take to the field and use with a generator.

The S1500 is an ultra premium power supplyReview by teshreve

I've owned an S1500 for 2'ish years now. Recently have been running it @ its rated capacity of ~1500w with a single 406 Duo attached, running both channels at 30 amps charging 4x 6S 5000mah packs (2P6S config per channel).
The included output cable gets nice and warm after several minutes at ~60 amps, which is surprising considering it is 10 AWG.
The cooling fans even at this power level are not obnoxiously loud and are silent or very quiet at lower power outputs.
The display showing watts, volts, and and temp is the bees knees. I like to know what is going on and this feature was one of my main purchase reasons. As well, the adjustable voltage, has been handy a few times when using an older Hyperion charger that only supports 12v inputs, Although it is a bit clunky to adjust the output voltage.
The power-on beep is quite obnoxious. Not sure why a beep is needed at all or why it is like 5 seconds long and ear piercing. Shame. Good news: It only happens when AC power is applied and not when you turn the unit on with the buttons on the front.
The build quality and aesthetics are great.
The chassis stays warm even when not delivering any juice, which prompted me to measure its power consumption
Plugged in and not on: ~2W
On but not powering anything: 11W
I would remove power to it when not using it.

I've had a ton of power supplies, having been in RC since the late 80's and this is by far the best, and with any luck the last one I will every buy. (Posted on 8/25/2017)

Matching a power supply to a PL8 v2 and all the power lab supplies were sold out across the internet. Chose this unit and have been very impressed. Can turn it on and off. Fans only come on when unit gets warm enough. Fan noise is less than others at the field. Have had compliments from other pilots. Unit appearance is finished and clean unlike other supplies available. Price was on par with comparable units. No complaints. (Posted on 8/21/2017)

I bought a S1500 V2.0 from PRC in December 2015 to power my 308DUO. Since then I have had absolutely zero issues with it. Its performed flawlessly. Its a solid unit and everything looks well designed and executed. For the price, you will have a hard time finding something better. I would not hesitate to buy another or recommend it to friends (which I have and still do)

A few minor things to be aware, no of these are bad things or deal breakers in my opinion.
1) It doesn't have an On/Off switch on the unit that completely shuts it off, not big deal, you just have to unplug it from the wall.
2) Make sure you push the power cord in all the way, otherwise it will come out halfway through your charge cycle....I learned this the hard way. Not the fault of the power supply. Also make sure you use the cord that it comes with. This thing can pull some serious current on 120VAC and a lesser cord will not handle it.
3) The fans only run when it reaches a certain temperature. This is nice because some of the time its silent, depending on load. However, it also means that the fans will run for about 10 seconds, turn off and then start up again maybe a minute later under certain conditions. It can get annoying, but if you are really pushing it, the fans just stay on.
4) Regarding temperature, the unit does display the an internal temperature reading, however the reading it displays is not the same reading that controls the fans. I had to check this with the manufacturer, because despite being odd, it is how the unit is designed to operate.


Lastly, PRC is an excellent vendor to deal with. (Posted on 3/19/2017)
