Bought the Real Power Workshop for my son that takes 4 x D batteries (will be expensive!) Box says adapter can be used then it shows 6VDC then 15W. Do I need a 6V adapter and what does the 15W stand for?
Hoping you can help - not really my field!

15W = 15 watts ie how powerful the adapter needs to be.

I bought one for santa but didn't check the box for batteries (, so thatnks for your comment, i'll look for a suitable multi adapter instead.
You will need a power supply that out puts 6v at 2.5A (or 2500ma)
Like these (end may be different though)

Called the makers and they only advised that this one worked from Argos

My calculations are that its not powerful enough as only 1200ma!!

Thanks harlzter for confirming what I need - just need to keep looking as I think the best bet is to go for a multi volt and ended one to be sure (and at least it could be used on other things!)

Might just have a quick scan on the internet for a cheaper price - or somewhere that I can pick up tomorrow!

That only outputs 2000ma at 6V the 2500ma is on the lower voltages
Its worth looking at your old routers power supplies as they can be suitable dependant on spec.

I have a couple of boxes of old power supplies I can often find something I need by mixing the transformers and end adapters to suit.
