CAN I USE 15 VOLT DC ADAPTOR ON 12 VOLT DC APPLIANCE

Hello,
I run 2 x 12 volt DC fans (rated at 0.25 amps each. My original power adaptor (240 volt ac down to 12 volts dc, 1100 milliamps) has burned out. I have found another adaptor (240 volts ac down to 15 volt dc, 500 milliamps) - could I use this, or would it burn out the fans.

  1. It would probably burn out the fans.
  2. better use the proper voltage to avoid electrical failure
  3. Don't because unless it's a regulated supply it will probably go over 15 volts -- and 15 is a high enough ratio over 12 to cause problems already.
