i have a question about DC adapters.
if i use an adapter with 300mA instead of the recommended 100mA will it affect the receiver i'm using?

Its OK if its more. A 100mA device requires AT LEAST 100mA to function. Some universal power adapters are 1000mA to handle most electronic devices since they re ussually 100-800mA.

thanks! if i use a 9.6v adapter for something that wants 9v, is that bad?

If it's not the right polarity it might blow your device.


Even if it's the right voltage/polarity, but if it's not regulated, it will not give out exactly 9 v. If the MA is high, about 500 ma or more, it might go up to 14 v if the device loaded has low ma requirements such as 4 ma, like the boss ds-1, in which case the load will only come down to about 12v.......


So your boss ds-1 might actually be given 12 v in a supposedly 9v adapter if adapter is 500 ma and UNREGULATED.
