Thanks for the reply.

Yes it's mostly considerations of cost. I would like to spend no more than a few tens of dollars on this power supply.

I'll try to find an affordable one.

I always start such a search (i.e. amateur electronics construction) at Radio Shack and Amazon. Search under "DC Power Supply"

Don't be afraid to spend too much money on this since if your an experimenter you'll probably want if for something else in the future. Don't be afraid to spend $50 on it.

So I've found 2 types of DC power supply. Not sure which one is best or even if their specifications match my needs.
Can you advice?

The first one is the type of thing you need .... the second is for a dedicated purpose , not variable ...

I buy everything from eBay ... this one is also 5A, 30V for only $12.... " 30V 5A Digital DC Power Supply Variable Adjustable Lab Bench Test Equipment Tool | eBay "

10A , 30V would be better if you want to spend that much ...

It's all about Amps and Volts , and if it looks right ...
