I see that some people recommend using the eikon power supply, how long have you been using it? has it helped you alot? do you see a differnce in your work? im thining about purchasing it.

Do you guys have a website so i can take a look at your work? Thanks!!!

Actually..i USE a technical tattoo power supply that works really well. The one with lazer etched water on it. it goes up to 10, it has a numbered dial and has a dial lock so it doesnt slip. it only cost 140 bucks and works great. My boss has an eikon 300 that has been running strong for 2 years with no prob. Its even been dropped a few times. i dont usually tune my machines with the ems, but sometimes i do run them with it to see where im at with numbers. its really handy if you get stuck on a tune and need some help. I WOULD have an ems but needed a power supply asap and didnt have 300 bucks. -joe p

eikon power supplies just run soooo much smoother. if i tune a machine using the eikon and then run it on something else it usually takes more volts to get it to run. it also just seems to be choppy. ive dropped my a bunch of times. i had to get the knob potentiometer replaced after three years or so, it had broken free of the circuit board. i think you can get one without the meter for about $150. ive also heard good stuff about the pulse power supply.

thats strange..on my technical supply my liner runs clean at 9v. on the ems it only runs clean at 11v or higher. Why is that?

joe, does the techinal have a digital readout or are you just going by the number on the knob? im just wondering. im not framiliar with the power supply your speaking of. also another thing, i believe the eikon reads how much voltage you machine is actually using and not how much your power supply is putting out, if that makes sense.

Has any one used that knock off Eikon power supply, i need another power supply and i dont want to spend 260 bucks so

dread..yeah its a number knob. let me guess, the number knob is a ballpark and not an exact reading. and that makes sense on the ems reading. thanks -joe p

You get what you pay for... again I have to say the Eikon EMS 200 is the way to go. Oh ya, Eikon Does Not make an EMS 300. check the web-site
www.eikondevice.com

You may get what you pay for but im sure eikons are super marked up, im going to buy the knock off and disect it and compare it.

Posted by aw8one on 10/15/07


So im going to buy a second power supply for traveling etc, and well some times i get caught up in the whole, its more expensive there for it must be better. Honestly though isnt a power supply a power supply besides digitial readout like the like the ems 200 has what else is there that makes one better then the other. The other eikon model without the digital readout is still pretty pricey and doesnt look much different then a power supply from needlejig.com that sales for 80 bucks that im considering to buy. My knowledge of power supplies is limited and i know most tattooers use the finger to measure out the power and not the digital readout. So just wondering what other peoples thoughts were on this. I like to save money when i can.

One thing i will say is that its alot about the company as opposed to the price. The Eikon unit may cost more, and may be vurtually the same as one of the knock offs in design...but Does the knock off assemble them as well, use as nice of materials and or parts? Do they give a rats ass if you have a problem with it. Maybe the knock off company is great. I dunno. But i personally would trust that my money is well spent more with eikon. Its a good unit, and i feel from all the times i talk with them on the phone that they would take the time to help if there was a problem. The company selling that $80 unit may or may not give a funk if it stops working on day two. Just tossing that out there. Good luck with what ever you get!

get that 80 dollar needle jig supply and see how long it lasts compared to an eikon.

trust me the jig supply was the first one I used when i got my apprenticeship 2 years ago and it lasted about 4 months.

Iv seen good artists pull clean work with crap supplys and bad artists pull shit with the best supplys you can get but in the end there is a difference, alot of that in reliability.

sorry to sound like an idiot but what does built in amp protection mean

does that mean the power supply runs on three amps or is that for surges. As far as what i know amps is what seperates some of the good power supplys from the bads. But i kinda have no idea what im talking about
