Compact, robust and easy to install
June 7, 2013
I got this transformer to power a couple of 20W halogen bulbs in the hood of an outside grill. It's small and mounts to the wall with a single screw so was easy to install. It has an in-line switch on the line power cord so it can be turned off when not in use (a good idea for switch mode power supplies like this if you live in an area with a lot of thunderstorms!). I directly wired the unit to the grill 12v line ... and nothing. Subsequently found a short (due to poor manufacturing of the Kitchenaid grill!), but the transformer survived just fine, so I know that the short circuit protection works well! Now works just fine.
Pros:- Easy & flexible installation; quite long input and output cables
- Electrically robust
Cons:- None thus far
