Not for Balance King, Jumper, Titan, or x7; as they're all good lines from Huntkey.
The V power is a rebranded Green series

From that link you provided
However, after a few minutes working at 450 W the power supply exploded. So it can deliver its labeled power for only a few minutes. Therefore if we were the ones labeling this unit, we would prefer labeling it as a 420 W or even as a 400 W unit.

Boom! That's a balance King btw

here is some video footage

They were good for their time (Seasonic S12, CWT PSH, etc)
Voltages are relatively tight (within 3%) and the ripple wasn't terrible (still in spec at 85mv)

The 500w didn't though.

You also have to consider that the 450w was almost at 50*C while it's only rated at 25*C.

The 500w didn't though.

You also have to consider that the 450w was almost at 50*C while it's only rated at 25*C.
No it doent have 80plus certification and no pc runs 25 degrees inside.

It is important to note that we were very generous with temperatures, because we started testing this unit at 85 W, a load that doesn’t produce a lot of heat inside our thermal chamber. We didn’t want to heat our thermal chamber with the power supply running at a higher load because we didn’t know beforehand if the power supply would be able to deliver any higher load. Therefore we decided to play on the safe side.

And a psu is not suppose to explode! lol But the Jumper and X7 are good units.


But did they step up due to this?
From six different power supply models from Huntkey we tested to date, five of them couldn’t deliver their labeled wattage, literally exploding (we posted the videos of the explosions on YouTube). They offered us money to take the reviews down and also started a campaign to make other manufacturers to boycott us, which actually backfired on them.

80+ Certified means squat.

A PSU doesn't have to be 80+ Certified, or even 80% Efficient to be good.
What is to say though, that these units couldn't run at 40*C or 35*C?
Sure it's not the greatest option, but I've seen very few cases where a PSU is intaking 50*C temps anymore.

EDIT: Also, the BK 450 didn't really "Burn" it had a silent death. It also didn't damage his SunMoon which means that protections were in place and working.

I know it means squad but I didnt brought up the 25 degrees temp which they get tested at over 80+. lol

No it didn't burn your right it exploded

OCZ ZS series is coming out soon manufactured by FSP

It didn't explode though. Where was the fire? The Shrapnel? Not present.

It also did not happen with the 550w unit...

its a psu not a hand grenade lol. Yeah Ecos do it at room temps. The 550w was actually better but like I mentioned right after the attempted bribe they stepped up theyre quality and their psus is doing very well and its good to see. Only if someone can start doing it in the UPS business aswell coz they are doing exactly what the psu manufacturers did years ago before all the thorough reviews you get these days

Heres a god DB have a look

They can't put in values without a review though. But theyre pretty spot on 99.9 percent of the time tough.
