Blitzwolf BW-CP1 600W Review – The 30-dollar PSU That Survived my Tests!

I rarely review dirt-cheap PSUs but I decided to make an exception for the Blitzwolf BW-CP1 600W, which can be found for as low as $25-$30. The PSU managed to endure all of my tests with breaking, which is noteworthy for such a low priced product. 

Blitzwolf said hello to the world in 2015, so it is a relatively new brand. They charged with phone charging accessories and products and soon moved to many categories, including computing. Most Blitzwolf products have highly affordable price tags, and besides its page, you can find them in popular Chinese online stores, including Banggood. While writing for TechPowerUp, several users asked me to review a Blitzwolf PSU, which costs only 25-30 dollars while offering 600W max power output, with 200-240VAC input. I usually don’t even lose time on such low-priced PSUs because a failure can harm my sensitive equipment, but since I have a good experience with Blitzwolf products so far, I decided to buy a PSU from Banggood and give it a try. The BW-CP1 comes in two flavors, one with 400W max-power and the stronger model, which I purchased, with 600W capacity. The price difference between these two units is slight, as expected. The only problem seems to be which one you will find available for purchase.

Blitzwolf claims an 80 PLUS White certification, but I couldn’t find the PSU under Blitzwolf’s name in the database. I don’t know if an OEM certification was used in this product. There are no modular cables to keep the cost low, but the temperature rating for full load is quite high, for an affordable PSU, at 40°C. The unit’s dimensions are compact, with 140mm depth, so the maximum fan size that could be used is 120mm. Lastly, I couldn’t find a clue on this product’s warranty period, so don’t expect it to exceed 12 months.
