  • I have a feeling that these will probably work on low-to-medium voltage DC input (24VDC on up) to get that 5V output too. They might not output the full rated current at the lower DC input voltages, however, and bypassing the bridge rectifier on the input would both lower the DC input voltage required to run it as well as increase the power you can draw from it on DC (since only half the diodes in the bridge would be passing power).
    They look exactly like a couple of Samsung phone chargers I’ve tested to work on my 36V SLA e-bike motor pack, except for the custom connector, and have the same input specs. There’s some info about what I did at my bike blog, http://electricle.blogspot.com/2009/11/diy-cfl-hl-wdc-dc-inverter.html

No public wish lists :(
