Voltage/plug question


I have a hardware device that has its plug which states:

"Input 100-240V ~ 50/60Hz 0.8A
Output 6.0v 3.5A"

I have another plug which states:

"Input 100-240V ~ 50/60Hz 0.2A
Output 12v 1A"

I'm guessing its pretty high in terms of the power output correct?
if I were to use instead a plug that gives more output than the original plug - would it cause damage to the device im connecting to? This will not be for long term usage

its not for a PC!

  1. sorry, wasnt sure where to post it! It is technically a computer related equipment! :-P

  2. The outputs are incompatible, the first one is outputting 6V the second one is outputting 12V so it would end up feeding twice the designed current into the box blowing it out. NEVER use a power source that was not meant for the object.
  3. The output voltage (v) must be the same and the output current (a) must be equal to or greater than required amount.
