Can you link to this power supply, are you referring to their little
switcher power supplies in the perforated metal cases?
Yes. I bought this 15V 7A supply for $20 on eBay: <https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mean-Well-LRS-100-15-105W-15V-7A-Single-Output-Switchable-Power-Supply/112267760381?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649>

It has a "tweaking" potentiometer, which I used to adjust the output voltage to 14.7V.

My only concern is that the AC power wires attach to a terminal strip with screws that are exposed. Yes, they're separated by barriers, but I don't like ANY exposed 120VAC connections. After I secured the AC connections, I applied some RTV silicone to the three screws.

It looks like a nice power supply. I hope it works well, even on humid nights.
