User Tony Asked:

The adapter I need states that it is DC12V-2.5W. There is no Amp rating. Which adapter do I need?

Our Technician Answers:

Hi Tony. To find out amperage, you divide the watts by the volts... So in this case, it will be 2.5W / 12V = .2A. This load is less than 1A, so you would use the smallest unit we have, which is 1A.... Here is the link: http://www.12vadapters.com/adapter/power-supply/12v/1-amp-ul-listed-12-volt-1a.html

Do UL listed power supply have same specs as the standard, ie, They will protect your valuable electronics against spikes and dips in power, and will shut themselves off in case of instability. If they overheat will they shut off? Can they be used in under cabinet LED lighting? Thanks.

Our Technician Answers:

Hi OMar.. Yes the specs for the UL and non UL version are the same. THe UL version has a lower failure rate though, and handles fluctuations in power better... And Yes, they are ideal for cabinet LED lighting.

User Dan Asked:

What is the difference between the standard 12v power supplies and the UL listed power adapters?

Our Technician Answers:

Hi Dan... The UL listed power supply adapter receives much more rigorous quality testing. Each of it's components is approved for quality and resistance. The standard power supply adapters which are great for home or consumer use have a 1 year warranty. The UL listed 12V power supplies are ideal for use in critical application, medical uses, sensitive equipment, where failure is not an option. They have a 2 year warranty.
