Rated 1 out of 5 by from Confusing I ordered what I was hoping to be a fixed 12V AC transformer. However, the product turns out to be a dual-voltage 12 and 18 V unit, with no instructions as to how to switch between the two outputs, and no explanation about the co-axial connector on the housing. Only a time-consuming effort to contact the OEM resulted in the necessary information; it turns out that the equipment would not be CE-compliant unless it had two outputs: The fixed cord is the 12V/3A output, and the socket carries the 18V/0.5A output.
