Hi All,

>*Someone could make a lot of money keeping an online database of all the
*>*electronics that take power adaptors and what they require.  You search
*>*for your device, select it...*

The question about amperage in power supplies intrigued me because I had the
ignominious job of keeping track of dozens of these for a catalog of
used/out-of-date "wall warts."

It shouldn't take a lot of work to make a database, if everyone would email
me (privately) about what power requirements their equipment has. The most
important things are: Voltage, Amperage, polarity, A/C or D/C and
connectors. We could make the SVLUG website even more useful if the
infomation were stored there.
