I purchased this item to replace the OEM AC/DC adapter that came with my Arcade1Up Street Fighter 2 mini-cabinet unit. I rarely have the time to play on it since assembly. After beating the game a couple times, my kids have mostly logged hours on this particular machine. I would estimate the original adapter had a little under 50 hours of actual use over the 15 months of ownership. This arrived quickly (thanks Amazon), connected up without a hitch, and appears to be a perfect match for either of my cabinets (i.e. Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat). I may purchase another just as a backup. Hopefully this one lasts longer than the OEM unit. It looks pretty beefier when compared side by side (see photo). Also the included LED should help identify faults in the future so I don’t have to whip out the multimeter to verify if it is actually working or not! I will update this review accordingly if this new unit doesn’t last.

I??m afraid I was only able to light up my LED light strip on my camper once (1st) and the next time I tried to use this adapter it would not work at all. I plugged it into several outlets and then used my amp,ohm,volt meter to test it. When I discovered this was not working it was outside the return window. Shame on me for not testing it immediately upon receipt. I was outfitting a newly purchased camper and was testing and installing a lot of equipment.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can i use this instead of an adapter that has a max input of 1A? All other values are the same except output is 2.5A so that should be ok right?
Answer: The device should only draw the amount of current it needs……..However if you tried to power a device needing 2.5 with a 1 amp….it wouldn’t work…

I have a seagate 8tb backup drive that only days ??12vdc 3a??…and no wattage rating. will this work?
Answer: 12vdc multiplied times 3a = 36 watts. P Watts is equal to E volts times A amps. But of equal importance is the plug size and + or – polarity of the voltage required by the drive. Get the wrong polarity and you will blow either the drive or power supply.

What are the specs for the required power supply, please?
Answer: The name says it all. 12 volts 5 amps!

Anyone use with with a limksys wrt1900acs router? the router needs 12v 3a so i know the power is good but is the plug right?
Answer: I would think it would as long as it meets your 12v3a specs !

does the input amperage of an ac/dc converter need to match my electronic device of the replacement adapter?
Answer: The maximum output amperage of the charger is its capacity. It can provide less amperage, but not more than the maximum. So the charger capacity needs to be at least the same as the amperage draw of the device.
