iBall LPE223-400 is an entry level and cheap Power Supply /SMPS from iBall. It comes pre-installed with almost all the cabinets from iBall and is very common in Indian computer market. I am posting this article because some of the users want to know the specification and information about this iBall SMPS, which is not available on the internet also.
iBall is an Indian computer peripherals and electronics company that sells variety of products like keyboards, mouse, web cam, speakers, headphones, smps, ups, mp3 players, pen drives, mobile phones, barcode scanners, tablets etc. iBall does not manufacture any products, they just import them from other countries, mostly from china and sell them under their own brand. iBall has become a popular name in Indian computer market because of their products relatively cheaper prices and the amount of advertising they do. iBall is very popular for their computer cases / cabinets and power supplies / smps. Their cabinets are pretty good but their range of power supplies / smps is pretty bad. Here I will talk about one of its widely available 400 Watt SMPS, which is iBall LPE223-400 which can be found very easily in any computer shop / store and I must say it is a really bad smps / psu and you should avoid it or dump it if you already have one.
iBall LPE223-400 Power Supply Unit (PSU) / SMPS Specification and Price
iBall LPE223-400 is a 400 Watt SMPS and have the following amount of current specified under each rail.
iBall LPE223-400 Specification
Here you can see that it has got only 17A on 12V rail which is very bad and insufficient. It should be at least 20A for a basic computer system and more than 30A if you plan to install a lower-mid range graphics card. So my advice is to keep away from this SMPS and I do not recommend using any Graphics Card with this power supply.
