Nice, I always wondered if it was the tips that were adjusting "stuff." When Circuit City went out of business they had a huge "sale" and they had hundreds of these things for $12 each. At the time I only needed one. Stupid me.

Note: The 5-pin connector on the schematic is to show the conductor colors in the cable. It does not represent the pin locations on the power supply.

I'll map the connector pinout when I have a chance.

Just for the record, these supplies are available on-line at reasonable prices. Similar 70 watt supplies are listed for $15 at several sources.

I didn't mention that this supply also has a 12V DC input, so you could have a variable lab supply in your car.

A diagram showing the pinout of the connector has been added to the article.
