User Mike & Missy Asked:

My husband is a paranormal investigator so I am constantly searching & purchasing audio, video, & surveillance equipment, so I actually have a couple of questions. Any assistance &/or advice you can give will be greatly appreciated. (1) While moving, I ran acrossed an AC/DC power adapter (all by its lonesome) with the printing: Model # DY-08050/ Input: 100-240 VAC (50/60Hz) Output: 8volt--500mA. Do you have any idea what device this might be for? We're thinking it could be for one of the Canon ZR500, or ZR700 camera's but are not prepared to chance plugging it in w/o further advice. (2) We are also searching for a mini portable power source ( to charge) in order to power wireless mini DV camera/camcorder's, & IR lights. Lightweight enough to "dangle" from the Swann wireless surveillance camera's would be GREAT! But ANY suggestions are greatly appreciated. Please respond at your earliest convenience, & we thank you for your assistance. Respectfully, Mike & Missy PostScript: Listed below are devices they would need to power: (1) Swann wireless camera's,(2) Sony (Handicam/Mini DV's/DCR/DVD's/Cybershot camera & Hi-8/S-VHS-C/ & VHS-C (3) Canon (Elura,ZR500/ZR700/DCR/DVD-100/DCR/DVD-200/& ELF series. (4) & a few misc. camera & camcorders (DGX/Olympus/Sylvania/Panasonic) Thank you again! Respectfully, Mickey & Missy

Our Technician Answers:

Hi MIke and Missy. While I cannot answer about specific devices and brands, I can let you know how to find the power supply you need yourself. All you need to know is the Voltage of the device, and the Amperage it uses. The voltage has to be an exact match, so if your devices uses a 12 Volt power, you will need to use a 12V power supply. Amperage on the other hand, is a minimum number. For example, if your device uses 9 Amps, you can use a 9 Amp adapter, or a bigger one.... So a 10A power supply can handle an 9A, and 8A, a 7A, load etc... The device will just pull what it needs... So if you match the voltage and amperage, the device will work...

User Guillermo Padilla Asked:

need a 12 volts 1amp but need it white, do you carry them?

Our Technician Answers:

Hi G. All our in stock power supplies are black. For an order of 100 units of more, we can make them in any color..

User David Asked:

Looking for a adapter input 100-240v 2.0a 50/60hz. Output 12v---- 7.5a. Do you have one

Our Technician Answers:

Hi David... For a 12 Volt device that requires 7,5A of power, you would use the 12V 8A power supply. That power supply can handle any load UP TO 8A.

User Tony Asked:

The adapter I need states that it is DC12V-2.5W. There is no Amp rating. Which adapter do I need?

Our Technician Answers:

Hi Tony. To find out amperage, you divide the watts by the volts... So in this case, it will be 2.5W / 12V = .2A. This load is less than 1A, so you would use the smallest unit we have, which is 1A.... Here is the link: http://www.12vadapters.com/adapter/power-supply/12v/1-amp-ul-listed-12-volt-1a.html

User Omar Asked:

Do UL listed power supply have same specs as the standard, ie, They will protect your valuable electronics against spikes and dips in power, and will shut themselves off in case of instability. If they overheat will they shut off? Can they be used in under cabinet LED lighting? Thanks.

Our Technician Answers:

Hi OMar.. Yes the specs for the UL and non UL version are the same. THe UL version has a lower failure rate though, and handles fluctuations in power better... And Yes, they are ideal for cabinet LED lighting.
