The TURNIGY 3A UBEC utilises switching technology to gain a much higher efficiency than a linear BEC, this means less heat and longer battery life. The UBEC is equiped with a noise reduction alloy housing to reduce noise even further. Incorrect polarity safety feature ensures the UBEC will not be destroyed should the battery be connected incorrectly.
• Over current and over heat protection.
• Switching frequency 300khz.
• 92% chip efficiency
• Noise reduction alloy housing
Output: 5v/3A or 6v/3A (selectable)
Input: 5.5v-23v (2-5S Lipo pack, 5-15cells NiMh)

I have over the time used about >20 of these in different applications, ranging from powering my R/C plane receivers to powering the USB smart phone charging socket retrofitted in my car to powering the navigation display in my full size plane. None has ever failed. They are small and live up to the specs (3A), while providing a reasonably ripple free voltage that does not interfere with any of the radios involved, be it 35MHz, 118KHz or 2.4GHz. Great product! It's a pity they are on backorder for months now, else I had already ordered another 10 or so.
Be aware there are cheap replicas out threre on ebay and elswhere! Due to lack of originals, these cheapo fakes are starting to show up in regular shops, and since some fakes are of a pretty poor quality, they harm the reputation of the original! Hobbyking, do something about it, have a new batch originals made ASAP!
