The Dynamo Mini: Potent power

When KMPKT started on their quest to design what would eventually become the Dynamo Power System, they had one goal in mind: to provide small form factor enthusiasts a virtually unlimited capacity to utilize any PC hardware they wanted, in new and creative ways.

The inspiration for the Dynamo Mini and 360 was a number of interesting system builds that attempted to marry form factors (such as Intel’s Next Unit of Computing (NuC), Thin Mini-ITX, and Mini-STX) with traditional video cards, among other devices. KMPKT quickly learned that in each of these builds, the power delivery system was always the stumbling block. The few builds that were ultimately successful contained a mess of wires and awkward adapters. Furthermore, as a result of this complexity, each of them was only within reach to the most advanced of small form factor enthusiasts. Wanting to build the smallest PCs available, but lacking the knowledge about how to power them, KMPKT set to work on the Dynamo series.


Dynamo Mini Features

KMPKT's Dynamo Mini provides 200W of power across precisely the outputs one needs to power a full compact PC build, complete with discrete GPU. The unit itself docks into the 22-pin connector present on the vast majority of ATX motherboards, enabling short cable runs and taking up virtually no usable space.

Meanwhile, for those with high power deliver needs, the Dynamo 360 DC-DC power supply impresses with its ability to pass power through to a second DC powered device, as well as to sync power on and power off via a fan header (or other 5V line from the paired DC device). While the intended recipients of the passthrough are either the KMPKT Dynamo Mini, or a DC-based motherboard such as Intel’s NuC, the Dynamo 360 can also be daisy chained for higher wattage applications or operate without use of the passthrough at all (with multiple AC-DC adapters).

Because of the versatility enabled by the Dynamo Mini and 360, the Dynamo system allows users to not only make small and efficient builds, but also to build DC-DC based systems that have vastly higher power capacity than previously possible.

Overview

Introducing the next-generation Dynamo Mini: Now serving 200W!

Building upon the success of the original, KMPKT's latest revision of the Mini power supply introduces significantly improved power efficiency at idle states, a 40W-higher power delivery rating, and improved compatibility with many GPU + motherboard combinations. Paired with the same selection of outputs and compact size of the original, the Mini is now even more capable and convenient to use in ultra-constrained, high-performance contexts.
