But otherwise, Allison reports that the IRF510's
behavior is similar to the 10x more expensive RF
devices such as the RD16HHF1. She continues to
use the IRF510.
I was about to order a handful of IRF510s as it
appears that I am in need of a replacement. Whether
I end up with fakes or real ones, they don't look
too expensive to replace. However, if it became
a habit, it could start to add up. I know there
has been talk of replacements, but are just a
few people losing the finals, or is it becoming
common? I'll definitely be ordering IRF510s to
see how they fare, but if they start to go on
a regular basis, is the RD16HHF1 the logical
replacement? I might experiment with higher voltages
on an IRF510 at some point in time, but my plan
is to operate on 12 to 13.8V most of the time.
