    12V 4A Power Supply

    I'm on the look out for a couple of 12V 4A power supplies (for 17" TFTs), I'm not really fussed whats on the DC end as I will prolly just put on the correct DC plug if required.

    Its for myself personally I will pay postage and maybe a small amount for the adaptors them selves. Will also consider swaps if you are after anything

    Help me Edugeek your my only hope!

    if you dont mind a bit of ugly hacking then you can use the 12V feed from an ATX supply (just checked its 12V at 10 amps on one lying next to me.) Probably best to fit an inline automotive fuse just to be on the safe side and dont use puny copper wire at least the guage of the existing wire and best if you make the join to your cable from a soldered and heat shrink covered join.

    If you can't get any on the cheap, these are good TechnoField > 90W Universal Laptop AC Adapter including USB Port, Laptop Chargers

    They can do 12V at 4A.

    Oi!

    I was going to try all the old breakers locally but it seems they have all gone out of business, Logical Reclaim (used to be next door to you know who) and Intex etc.
