Power bricks I have known and loved
Power bricks are the cockroaches of consumer electronics: they're ugly, simple and seem to survive everything. I've got a collection of power bricks for now dead or gone equipment that happily keep pumping out volts.
So, I figured that I would catalogue them to see what I had lying around.
I won't bore you with the complete catalogue, but the output voltages are interesting (these are the rated voltages, and not measured): 24.5, 24, 20, 20, 19, 12, 12, 12, 12, 9, 9, 8.4, 8, 6.5, 5.9, 5.1, 5, 5, 5, 5, 3.6.
I guess I don't need a fancy bench voltage generator regulator!
