This one: DLS-45 45 Amp Power Converter w/IQ4

Randy, the owner, said he's sold 100's of these and has never had even one of them returned. He's a helluva good guy. If you call them, you can talk directly to the owner. Great small business. I'll be posting how I install everything over the next few days. See the Full Monte thread I referenced above.

Jim,

The DLS-45 s/IQ4 is exactly what I have....and it fried two Optima Blue Tops.

FWIW, I found an old-timer in San Angelo who runs an electronics repair shop. He told me he'd take a look at my UniVolt and see what it needed. He said he'd rather have the old UniVolt than a new converter. K.I.S.S. is sometimes the better choice, in his opinion and mine.

I think the only reason the UniVolts get a bad rap is because, when they're old, they don't work right anymore. It would be nice to hear from an original owner whether the UniVolts were crap, when they were new.

There are pleanty of people happy with the Univolt because of their habits and luck.
The technology however is far advanced beyond that and it not hard to see the difference or we would be repairing Univolts.
Simply put, modern switching converters are leaps beyond linear and fero style power supplies in all industries that use them. Signs, pianos, RVs, ham operators, etc all use switching power supplies now.
Jim, don't worry.
SFC Lynes (thanks for serving BTW) I'd like to know if you had a malfuction with the Iota from whomever you got it from. I have almost a thousand in service and not a return to date except one damaged in shipping. I need feedback like that but not getting anything but send my friend one.
I'm in it for you guys because I don't want them coming back any more than you do. At least you all know I'll be here if anything I've sent fails.
