Where to get a 12V 3A mains adapter from?

9
Found 11th Mar 2008
Trying to make use of an old pc monitor and have lost the power adapter that came with it, not seen an adapter that powerful for sale on its own before, usually see upto about 1A. Wondering if that sort of thing is easily available, am on the mobile because of all the redten problems so any help appreciated.

thanks!

Found one on ebay but 15 quid! If you see one cheaper let me know.
Maplins do a 5A/4A Variable Voltage Switched Mode AC/DC Mains Adaptor which would work for you. Item Code L11BQ. These are pretty good I use one.

The downside is the price £19.99 (and it's on special offer ATM it's normally £35!)

Input voltage:100-240Vac
Output plugs:A choice of 8 connectors are provided with the adaptor, please see table below
Dimensions:127mm(l) x 66mm(w) x 34mm(h)
OutputVoltage Current

6Vdc 5A
7.5Vdc 5A
9Vdc 5A
12Vdc 5A
13.5Vdc 4A

Can you get hold of a scrap PC that you can rip the PSU out of? Did that once to power a portable fridge from the mains instead of the car.
Only if you know what you are doing of course.

Definitely better (i.e. cheaper) than mine :oops::thumbsup:

That is AC/AC whereas mine was AC/DC, what kind do you want?

Looks like the first 2 need a kettle lead too.
Cheers Barney, back on the pc now so can have a proper look. I have plenty of kettle leads so that's not a problem. Need ac to dc.
Just had a look at those but the last one looks like the connector's too big and the first two don't show them! I have an adapter already but the connector won't fit in the monitor!

What size connector do you need for the monitor, I have some spare for the Maplins Mains adapter I posted above
