Also I am very keen on upgrading (pb pro or h )so is that worth doing before getting to carried away

hi
is the psu a dc output.???

Also if you feed 8amp's into one socket you still need another plug into the second socket to fool the pb into giving the full power to the rails,as it is supposed to be 4amps per socket.

The second socket need only be a blank plug for it to work ok.

hi
running both plugs will mean that you have enough current or power to run six cars,but the power supply unit(psu) needs to be dc output and not ac output.

The pin wiring needs to be as described and shown in the post made by keeto,ie the centre has to be + positive or red in colour and negative has to be the outer face of the plug -negative or black in colour.

If all the connections are done as described and the output is dc and the psu is 15v with a 8 amp output the pb is good to go,if you still get flashing lights and no power to the rails then it must be a faulty unit....

I found these in the meantime. It's for the Toshiba laptop PSU that some members use with their APB. Just put some banana plugs on the end and you're good to go.
