A nice 5V and 12V power supply solution

Post by Gyro Gearloose » Tue Jan 21, 2020 4:34 pm

I've bought several AC adapters that supposedly output 5V and 12V DC on eBay and they all turned out to be non functional. Probably factory rejects.
In any case getting a complete AC adapter for 5$ or 6$ seems to be not possible and the next price points are in the 40$ US plus zone.
However if you happen to already have a good DC power source of about 20V to 45V you can use this

I found that I already had one of these in my stuff and it works great, and with those terminals it's much easier to hook up.

The price really seems great.

The price one pays for pursuing any profession, or calling, is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side.
