    Random Question, about electrics

    is it possible to get a device that turns your mains power from the wall 240v into 12v power.

    bought something that needs a 12v power supply, thought i had a spare car battery but its been binned now

    can't find anything online, only stuff that does 12v to 240v, not the other way round

    Depending on what kind of current/wattage you need, a computer power supply will do the trick

    Re: Random Question, about electrics

    it just says, "operating voltage 12v=" & "Power consumption: max. 150mA"

    its a "Hochleistungs-Ultraschall-Impulsgenerator mit Lautsprecher"


    how would i go about connecting to the computer power supply?

    The Battery Charger I had for RC cars was 12v so i could used it trackside of a leisure battery, but as it was charging the night before racing and it was easier to run of mains at home i imported this from Hong Kong. It also allows you to adjust the current
