    Question [newbie Q&A] Will any 12 V AC Adapter work?

    Hi,

    All this talk about people frying their lilliputs has got me worked up, especially since Im certainly no electrical engineer and really dont have much of a clue.

    So I want to make sure: can I use any 12 Volt AC Adaptor (with the right plug for the screen, ofcourse) to power a 7-inch lilliput (the regular, touch-screen model everyone got)?

    I got one here, for instance, that has some stuff written on it:

    INPUT: 230V - 50Hz
    OUTPUT: 12V-MAX 12VA

    Could I use that one?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    I dont think so, since the package shipped with the lilliput comes with a:

    "240~100AC Adapter"

    But as I said, I dont have much of a clue

    Lilliput accepts 12V DC input. Your adapter will output this so it will be fine.


    Edit: U sure it says max: 12VA? hmm maybe, then it can handle 12W or 1A at 12v. The adapter that coems with the lilliput handles up to 1.2A, u should probably get away with it though.

    12V @1amp (1000mAH) will do just fine.
