  • Good adaptor

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - It can be opened with a screwdriver (good for DIY projects)

    Cons:

    - Audible frequency ripple in the output makes it bad for audio devices

    OtherThoughts:

    I use it for powering a Zyxel router. The router is rated 12 V x 1 A, so the adaptor is fully loaded and gets ward but not hot and works for 2 years now (not 24x7, though). The only thing is that the router has VoIP phone ports and adaptor produces humming in the attached phone. This is due to it beand a switchable power supply, so it is not good for audio devices. The good thing it can be easily disassembled, I did that to change the cable to the one that fits my router.

    Bottomline:

    Great power adaptor for use with electoronics or for DIY projects.
