Description: This is a high quality AC to DC ‘wall wart’ which produces a regulated output of 12VDC at up to 600mA. These are switch mode power supplies which means the output is regulated to 12V (no more 14V outputs!), and the capable output current is much higher (600mA!).
These will power most projects that don’t require more than 650mA of current. Center-positive 5.5x2.1mm barrel connector.
Works with 100-240VAC inputs.

Note: One of our shipments arrived with labels indicating 500mA. They are mislabeled and are actually 600mA.

The first one was not outputting the proper voltage but SparkFun replaced it, no hassle.
Seems to work, hasn’t gotten warm as far as I’ve noticed. Was a little annoyed that it has a red led that’s on whenever it’s plugged in, but you can put paint/tape over it.
Great product, keeps a steady 12vdc, replaced a cheap power supply that burnt up my led rechargeable flashlight charger because it went up to 16vdc and was supposed to stay around 12vdc.
Very stable output, nice form factor, feels like good quality. I noticed it gave 12.4 VDC on no load.
Price is right, Plug it in it simply works. What more could I want?
It’s hard to make a meaning review of a wall wart, it either works or it doesn’t. I plugged it in and it delivered the promised voltage and made my project work. That’s all I can ask for.
Excellent power supply both for powering my 12V-required projects as well as for hacking apart and using for other random projects. Have a few of these and definitely will be getting more.
