  • It works, but cannot handle a load of

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    They plug into the wall, and provide a source of DC power at 12v.

    Tested and works well to at least 340mA. (Powering a LED strip, sku.11303)

    Cons:

    THEY CANNOT HANDLE a 650mA constant load!

    If you are looking to use this at or near the specified 1000mA, look elsewhere (sadly, DX seems to have no other option :( )

    OtherThoughts:

    For DIY types, the plug is of approximately Adaptaplug Type M specifications (or, atleast, that socket size accepts this plug snugly and provides a solid electrical connection)

    As tested, my configuration only draws 650mA, far below the manufacturer's specifications. Even allowing for peaks or deviation from Ohmic laws etc, this guarantees that the maximum continuous current output IS NOT 1000mA.

    Bottomline:

    I hoped to use this adapter to run two 390mA (specified, only about 340mA as tested in my configuration) LED light bars (sku.11303).

    It failed this task :(

    Only use this to power devices with a draw below 650mA continuous. (I suggest nothing about 340mA as that is all I can attest to working)
