Turnigy 5A SBEC is an advanced switching DC-DC regulator which will supply a constant 5A. It works with 2 - 7 Cell Lipoly pack and supplies a constant 5 or 6v to your receiver and is interference-free.
Anybody can explain me what is the practical difference between this product and the Turnigy HV SBEC 5A Switch Regulator PRODUCT ID: HVSBEC.
I know (because I read it) one is a SBEC and the other is called switch regulator, but to me at the end both of them does the same job so why have two separate categories (SBEC and Voltage Regulators)
Also if you notice this one runs off you power supply and can handle up to 7S and the other one that calls regulator runs only max 8.4 volts 2S is made to power your receiver only ,for larger plane the power supply to motor is seperate from receiver batt .
I am using it with kk2 and 6opto escs (dji f550) and it works perfect

I bought this back in January to use with my T-Rex 500, since I wanted more than 3 amps to use with a standard tail servo. Unfortunately, this BEC will not supply more than about 2.5 amps, not the advertised 5amps, without dropping voltage to less than 3 volts. I had several issues while flying, which I couldn't figure out until I hooked the BEC to an ampmeter and found out how few amps it actually supplies.I would give it 0 stars if I could.
The description of this switching BEC is misleading. It will supply 3A continuous, but the output voltage drops off at any current draw higher than 3 amps. The ripple voltage is also extremely high compared to others and what would be expected from a power supply of this nature. The heat created is also unacceptable. Power hungry servos like the HXT900 (at 500mA each) would stress this BEC if using 6 servos. The only good thing is the ability to handle 6 cells.

The BEC has almost 1V peak to peak switching noise at 2-3 Amps. At 5 Amps the output dropped to 3.5V. The Hextronic 3A BEC is much better. Glenn.
