Switching Power Supply, 12VDC @ 5A




$19.00 ea.

This power supply is a brute! It's rated to supply 12VDC at 5Amps and is perfect for powering 12V LED strips, usually up to 5 meters!

Description [Hide]

Use this supply for powering LED strips and/or testing out a robot platform, it can pretty much do it all!


  • Input voltage: 100-240VAC 50-60Hz
  • Plug type: a computer style cable with the D plug on one end and USA/CAN/MEX style 3 prong plug on the other
  • Output voltage: 12VDC
  • Max output current: 5.0A
  • Environment: indoor use only (dry location)
  • Output jack: 2.1mm female barrel connector
  • Dimensions (mm): 115 x 45 x 32
  • Weight: 300g

Please Note: When dealing with large currents such as 5A be aware that you may need larger cabling to interface to it as standard 22 AWG wire may heat up quite a bit during operation.  This is CE Rated.
