Motiv Power Brick Power Supply (12V/60A/720W)
Just so people reading this review are aware, I am posting a similar review under the Team Trinity Monster Carbon Power Supply listing. If you read someone’s review on the Motiv power supply page, you will, you will find them suggesting you avoid that product (which, in essence, is attempting to insinuate that the Team Trinity power supply might be better. The TRUTH is, both of these pawer supplies are, essentially, the same…BOTH are made from recycled computer server power supplies. This is no different than other similar power supplies, such as those available from RL Power. Yes, the Team Trinity power supply outputs more Amps, and a higher wattage, but only because it’s a larger (ie. longer) power supply. For power supplies of this type, there are a few things all purchasers should be aware of:

1) Because these are used server power supplies, these “reconditioned” RC power supplies typically come with only a 30-day warranty.
LIE – If it doesn’t come with at least a 1-year warranty, the manufacturer doesn’t even truth it, they won’t back up their product, themselves, and, thus it should be avoided.
TRUTH – Because the product being sold contains a used product, and the company reconditioning/re-purposing the power supply into an RC power supply, didn’t manufacture that internal components, they, by law, can’t warranty the electronic components. That being said, they offer what is, essentially, a “good faith” warranty (be it 30-day, 60-day, or whatever), even though they are not required to. They have fairly thoroughly tested the server power supply, to make certain it passes specific tests, and only those units passing said tests are reconditioned into RC power supplies.

2) RC power supplies of this type are always inexpensive (at least compared to high-end power supplies, containing new internal electronics, such as those sold my Junsi), as server power supplies are inexpensive. Added to that is the fact that they are purchased, in bulk, at even deeper discounted prices (probably less than half the selling prices of the “new”/reconditioned RC power supply…but, not all purchased used server power supplies are reconditioned/converted into RC power supplies, as many of those purchased will fail the testing process.
LIE – Because these are made from used server power supplies, they are bad, not worth the money, and should be avoided.
TRUTH – The fact that these RC power supplies contain used server power supplies is NOT necessarily a bad thing, as they can easily last several years. Unlike home PC power supplies, which are NOT designed to run continuously, server power supplies ARE designed to run continuously, thus they are designed to have a VERY long life. A lot of companies (ie. IBM, Dell, etc) lease servers, which the leasing companies tend to upgrade every few years. These are the servers these power supplies come from…the percentage of remaining life in them is typically in the 50-75% range.

3) A lot of people equate the amount of money spent with how “good” a product is, as well as how long said product will last.
LIE – Power supplies like these must be ‘cheap’ quality’, thus another reason to not purchase them.
TRUTH – Whether the server power supply inside is ‘great’, ‘good’, or even ‘just ok’, it should NOT matter. Considering the price paid, and the expected life-span, you will, in the long-run, spend less on a few of these, than you would on some “high-end” expensive power supply. On top of that, you are helping the environment by purchasing this type of power supply, as all the power supplies that went into making these RC power supplies could have just ended up in some landfill.

Motiv Power Brick Power Supply (12V/60A/720W)
I've had one of these since 5/1/19. I'm running 2 chargers on it with 0 issues. My experience includes regular 110v service and running it from my inexpensive $100 generator (which was powering 4 chargers total + some accessories). Definitely another quality product from Motiv that looks great too.

Another reviewer gave this product a single star. They state something along the lines of having issues connecting two together to make 24 volts. I don't understand their issue as this product is not advertised to support or be convertible to a 24v system.

As far as 12v power supply, works great. Just to note it requires 4mm bullet connectors.

Motiv Power Brick Power Supply (12V/60A/720W)
Item was dead on arrival. Took a video and send it to Amain. I have to spend 50usd to return from where I am. Nothing Amain could do except refund 20usd store credit provided that I return. Very disappointed in the support given . And to add that I had to wait for the backorder before it was finally shipped.

Item couldn't be powered up. No LED. No noise. My voltage is okay. Other similar 'brick' power supplies with similar watts worked in my pit which I borrowed as I intended to use it for a race and obviously, I couldn't.

UPDATE: I contacted motiv and they are sending me a new one shipped with no questions asked and at no cost. That’s customer service and support.

This power supply works perfectly for my needs. I have a 400w quad charger and now with this power supply, I can charge 4 batteries at maximum wattage without breaking a sweat.

Power supply has worked great thus far. I like the small footprint and it's fairly light weight so it doesnt make a full bag too much heavier. It remained quiet but I'm only charging at 5.2 amps so that isn't a surprise (stayed cool to the touch).

Product doesn’t work out of the box. 0 volts to the power leads and LED doesn’t work despite appropriate voltage coming from my wall outlet and a humming noise in the brick itself. No response from company either. Would not recommend Motiv.

The device gives 12.350V
Work quietly.
Only US plug is included, it is not convenient if you live in the European zone.

Motiv Power Brick Power Supply (12V/60A/720W)

You cannot connect 2 of these together to create a 24 volt power supply without modification. These are recycled server power supplies and I have converted quite a few of these for making a 24 volt supply. The ground on at least one of the 2 has to be floated. If you don't do this you will be connecting 12 volts to the ac ground on one of the supplies. If you only float the ground on one of them then the +12v from the other one needs to be connected to the -12v of the floated one.

These supplies should come with an appropriate warning about this issue. It could very easily cause a fire.
