Hi would this be suitable for a baby monitor it needs DC6v 600mA ? Thanks

Asked by: Caroline
It's impossible to say for definite without info about the tip used on your device, ... you need to exercise extreme caution when orientating the tip to ensure correct polarity for connection. If you connect with incorrect polarity it will destroy whatever device you plug it into.
