Can I use any 12volt AC adaptor for any 12volt DC device
Posted on 2010-09-20
I have a dozen of all kinds of AC adaptors with outputs of 2 volts to 12 volts with varying amps/milli amps.
My question, for example. I have a 12 Volt AC adaptor with 12 volts / 2A DC output. As long as the connector filts, can I use this adaptor to replace a failed 12 volt /1A adaptor? Do I take a chance of blowing the device?
I cant recall if its not advisable to go over the recomended amp but you're safe to go under the recomended amp /MA.
