Pros:
Very cheap wall wart with a decent quality.
I use this one to drive one 30-led led strip (white) for my aquarium.
It seems to work well and the voltage is stable
Cons:
I ordered 3 of these and 1 of them did not work.
First I thought the led strip might be faulty because of transport or something, but after measuring votlage it seemed that the wall wart was not working correctly.
After opening it up (screw is behind the sticker) it seemed the cable running from the AC contact to the in build circuit was not connected (it had broken of).
After connecting it, it worked fine.
Other:
Bottomline:
Work very well and have a decent price.
I remember the days when I had like 20 of those in a box in case I might need one. They were pretty expensive and hard to get those days.
Now I can get rid of those used (and modified) wall warts and order cheap ones easily.
