New Transceiver for DX Vacation

TS-480HX arrived. It is expected as primary radio in next DX Vacation.
It is very small but much easier to use. 200w output will be available with 40A DC power supply.
I am investigating proper DC power supply. It must be small, light and reliable..

TS-480HX 200w output 3.7Kg
Eagle 100w output 3.3Kg
K2     100w output 2.6Kg
FT-857 100w output 2.1Kg

(KX3 10w output  <1Kg   need any amp for over 100w)

I have no reason to chose KX3 at present time. Elecraft have not announced yet about details of 100w amp
