This power supply is listed as having a max power output of 6W. However the specs also list it as 3V with a 1200mA max output - this gives a max power output of 3.6W. Which output is correct?

Asked by: Anne

I need a power supply for my DAB radio - 3v  500mA   0.7mm pin 2.35mm overall diameter with tip negative. Is this item suitable when adjusted correctly and is the correct pin included. 

Asked by: Gary
This should work fine for your intended use. Polarity can be reversed for centre negative and there is an included tip with the dimensions 2.35 x 0.7 x 10.5mm. I would still advise taking the radio into store and checking size if possible.

I need an AC adaptor. Output voltage rated at 3V DC 600ma with a centre negative plug for a portable cassette recorder. Is this the correct item?

Asked by: Hazel
The device has 3v output at up to 1200ma and the polarity can be user set to positive or negative centre, it comes with an assortment of different tips, as long as you configure the polarity correctly and the tip is of the correct size it should be fine.
