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.
Features: • Over current and over heat protection. • Switching frequency 300khz. • 92% chip efficiency • Noise reduction alloy housing
It is UBEC and SBEC :). BEC can be Linear or Switching. SBEC it's Switching BEC - more efficient way for lowering voltage (with opposite to Linear BEC). UBEC (Universal BEC) is usually used for highlighting that it is separate BEC (when it isn't built in some other device) it can be Linear or Switching - but most of them are Switching BEC. Check video which I posted few posts below this one.
Very tiny module. I was expecting a little bigger... It came in transparent shrink wrap.
The output wire has a JR battery terminal. The input terminal has no connectors attached, so you can attach the connect of your choice.
Actually weights 8gms
I am using 5 Futaba 3004 servs without any problems. IT barely gets warm.
Suggest to keep a min 10cm distance form the reciever to avoid interference.

I checked this UBEC on a spectrum analyser to see wether it put out lots of interference in the 35 MHz radio frequency band. There is some switching noise between 100 Khz and about 2 Mhz, which is to be expected as this is the main switching frequency and the harmonics of it. I was able to lower the noise by winding 2 extra turns of cable on the ferrite core. If you want it REALLY quiet, you can solder a small 4,7 uF Tantalum capacitor between the red and the black cable. Mine fits nicely inside the ferrite ring. But I guess these alterations reflect just my tendency to perfectionism. It would be interesting to do some comparative range testing with this UBEC vs. a receiver battery. Maybe when the wether gets warmer...

Very BAD PRODUCT.. The Cable is so Thin..!! i bought 1 of these and tested to my Turnigy Lipo 1300mah, than the Cable BURNING..!!

Poor quality. Have after some tests sometimes no output voltage. Just one time is to mutch. Thank god, i don`t have crashed my full glass EP-warbird with this BEC. I took another BEC.
Dont agree that this is photographed and labeled, 5A UBEC but when you get it, the instructions state 3 amps. Labeling a device that says UBEC - 5A but not stating 5A amps for 10sec is not right. It's rating is 3 Amps Constant, so it sould be labeled as shuch. I purchaed 2 of these thinking that I got nice small UBEC running at 5 amnps.. Wrong!!!
