I am getting the results that I want with this Power Extender. I tried the smaller version, but wasn't totally happy with the results of it. That could be my engines though. ????? These do take up quite a bit of space, which reduces the amount of weight I can use in my engines, but the performance has been worth it.
Very similar to the other brand capacitor banks, these little packs will hold a charge and help out with locos that have less than desire able pickups or that are sensitive to dirty track. These packs are designed to fit the 126 and 166 series of digitrax decoders, and the plug and play function works just fine. The product works as intended, but for me it only gets four stars; the charge held/ discharge of the unit does not seem to be on the same farad level with the other brand capacitor banks, meaning the discharge doesn’t have as much oomph to keep the loco going. For my small pike, these work well enough to get over a few frogs that stall my small wheelbase steamers. If you have a silent decoder in a loco with an occasional problem with pickup, give this a try, it so far has been worth what I payed.
Great product and simple to install, just plug into mobile decoder DH126D
