Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality - does not supply 1A Although this adapter is advertised as being capable of supplying 6V at a maximum of 1A, in reality it falls short. It seems any loading much more than 800mA causes the adapter to cut out. I bought it for use with a novelty singing crocodile, requiring a supply of 6V at 800mA. Useless because as soon as the device begins to sing, the adapter cuts out. I have tested it with other items and an ammeter with the same result. I'd recommend avoiding and buying a better quality branded adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silent power Bought this to power a bedside clock with radio control. Much quieter than the supplied unit ( virtually silent ) and the regulated voltage should make the clock last longer.
