I'd say that's a fair assessment.

Yep but it's an educated guess.

What do you call cheap? How come the Amiga one is cheap but the C64 one not?
Very cheap.

I need one, but I won't spend that. What I need more is a better Amiga Psu. If it powers on my heavy loaded Amiga I would spend that on it.

To be clear: the amount of money I am willing to pay depends on the reliability of the offered product.
I'm afraid I won't be catering for heavy loaders.

It might be worth mentioning that there's a limit to how much current you can blast through your Amiga. You can't keep hanging peripherals off it and beefing the supply supply ad infinitum. Eventually something will blow...
