Rated 3 out of 5 by from Although it states 2500ma this is only true up to 5V. The data sheet that comes in the box shows that the current rating drops to 1400ma. at 12V. However it does work with my 12v/2amp rated device. It runs pretty hot as you might expect. I ran it for an hour which is all I need. I'd be concerned if I needed it continuously at this level. For me the 2500ma rating shown is a bit misleading. Not sure if Maplin have a suitable 12V/2Amp power supply available. Neat little device though. moderator note: information regarding current per voltage output can be found in the FAQs on this product page (a higher current adapter would be an item like our order code L11BQ)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought this about 6 months ago as a replacement for a Netgear Router PSU. It's just failed. Considering the high price, this represents very poor value for money. Moderator note: Maplin offer a 12 month warranty on all items. If the item has failed within this warranty period it is recommended customers contact the maplin customer care team to discuss the return of the item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very nice item. I bought it to replace the power supply that came with a tablet PC I purchased from China. They always send a plug that you have to use an adapter with. The best part is that when I sell this unit for an updated one I will have a mains adapter to use for something else. There is a good choice of tips and voltages to choose from. It works very nicely. Thanks

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Whistling noise On the one hand solves a problem but very concerned about the constant loud whistling noise it makes whenever powering a device. Since I use this for a keyboard playing music it is pretty unwelcome as well as disconcerting. Doesn't make me want to leave it plugged in for long periods of time or unattended and annoys my ears which leads to constant plugging / unplugging - bit of nuisance. At such a high price I would not expect this as it doesn't inspire confidence in the quality (or safety??)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never make assumptions Bought this for my old DAB radio as I had damaged the speaker. Worked fine for 3 months then DAB flickered/stopped working. Silly me - I assumed the problem was the ancient DAB player. Later, after replacing the radio discovered it is this plug unit that is faulty. Maplins fine with replacement but it has been an expensive experience given that the original radio was unnecessarily recycled! I am keeping eye on the replacement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is the second time I have bought this item. With its multiple voltages and 8 different connections it has meant devices which would otherwise be scrapped are useable again

How do I identify the polarity of the tips please?

Asked by: Dean0
Look for a diagram like this on your device, this will indicate if the tip needs to be POSITIVE CENTRE or NEGATIVE CENTRE The use the markings on both the tip and cable to select the correct configuration.

Hi. I bought this a while ago and cannot find the instructions that came with it. Can you provide me with a list that identifies the different tips that come with it please? Great product by the way. Many thanks.

Asked by: dean0
The tips are not identified by a list, the power supply comes with an array of tips in different popular sizes, they are not for any specific device or task. You select a tip that fits your device, you then select the correct voltage for your device and then finally you configure the tip for the correct polarity. CAUTION: FAILURE TO SELECT THE CORRECT POLARITY WILL RESULT IN REVERSE POLARITY WHICH WILL DESTROY YOUR DEVICE.

Can I use the L06BR to provide power to an Icon CT-17 (CI-V) level converter. ie 9 -15 V DC IN (20 mA) required. If not can you suggest one that will.

Asked by: Brian
The voltage and amperage specifications for the power supply are listed as six output voltages - 5, 6, 7.5, 9, 12 & 13.2V DC with a maximum current of 2500mA This means the power supply is capable of supplying a voltage level and amperage at the levels you have stated, however you have not mentioned tip size or polarity. I did manage to find info online regarding an ICOM CT-17 communication interface level converter which shows a power pin with positive centre, so as long as you use the correct pin type and set the voltage correctly and align the power tip correctly to have positive centre then it should work fine. WARNING: Please read the instructions that come with the power supply carefully paying particular attention to tip polarity, if you set the polarity incorrectly you will destroy the circuits of the device you are trying to use.

Unfortunately not , the specs you have stated a 24v power supply , this has a maximum of 13.2v . This is a specific power supply from the manufactures that you require.
