I really don't see why you need a higher voltage power supply?** However, Coastal DCC sell a PowerPax 15volt 1.6 Amp http://www.coastaldcc.co.uk/products/power-supplies/ Close up here.. http://www.coastaldcc.co.uk/products/po ... wer-supply
Avoid the higher current 4.3Amp one as the PowerCab can not operate at that current Its absolute maximum is 3.0Amps and ideally around 1.5 to 2.0 Amps.
Another option (the DC plug may need an adaptor?) Amazon link

CPC are selling PowerPax 15v 2.0Amp power supplies with free delivery here CPC Farnell link

**Of interest, what is the rating of your existing power supply? The details will be on the Power supply label. Something like "Output - 13.8 volts at ?? ma or ?.? Amp"

That's the UK standard one Should give around 13.0 - 13.5 volts AC (DCC) to the rails.
