Several weeks ago I was working on a rig that I suspected had a bad power supply and for some reason I couldn’t find by power supply tester. So I had to do the job the old fashion way. Remove the old power supply and but in a new one. System booted and the problem was solved.
But it was getting time for a new tester so I looked around and stumbled on a Ultra Power Supply Tester that seemed pretty good so I ordered one. The Ultra offers more than just the old standard 20/24 pin connectors. They also offer 4/8 pin cpu connector, 4 pin floppy, sata and pci express are all include.
The unit itself is compact and you shouldn’t have any trouble placing this in your toolkit. Does it work? Yeap. I have a box of old stuff that I keep ‘just in case’ I need them. Which is usually rare and never. But I had a couple of faulty power supplies that I tested and the Ultra confirm they were bad.
So if you are in need of a good reliable power supply tester, consider buying the Ultra for ease of use and it’s testing abilities.
