    Default Ebay Power supplies going BANG! in 2 seconds

    Has anyone had a power supply purchased from Ebay go bang lately. The ones I'm mainly talking about is the 240V to 12 Volt DC 5 or 6 amp shaped like a brick with one LED showing operation. Yes I had a new one go BANG in 2 seconds of operation. It lucky I tested it first before I connected the DC on it.
    Not responsible for any post written after the 28/10/2014. My pet hate, Corrupt Politicians, Corrupt Legal System + a legal system Australia wide that does not allow you to sue a Solicitor or Barrister for Professional Negligence (as Stated by the Law Society and prominent Lawyers) and Corrupt Cops. Not necessarily in this order. Please Note Lawyers are PROTECTED SPECIES IN THIS COUNTRY, PROTECTED FROM THEIR F..K UPS

    Had a couple do that although they were ultra-cheap smaller plugpack types considerably lower rated than the one you mentioned. The 'bang' (or a pop and fizzle) was an electrolytic failing every time so put it down to cheap components of dubious quality.
