Fon+ on 0.9A or 7V?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Yay, my Fon+ arrived. But now I'm running into power issues.

The Fon+ shipped with a 110-120V power brick with an output of 7.5v 1A.

Without paying $60 or thereabouts for a US->AU converter brick (the cheapo $10-$15 travel adapters dont change the voltage), the closest I can find is a 'universal' power brick.

On the 7.5v output settings, the 'universal' brick claims to output 0.9A.

Is the 0.1A deficit any problem?

I also found a 7V 2A power brick - can the Fon+ run on just 7V?

It should work without issues. 1.0 amp is maximum amperage of the plug not necessarily maximum amperage the device is going to draw. You can assume that 1.0 is overkill because the manufacturer wants to cover their butts for all situations. Given that you're fine. Additionally, you're not going to always be drawing maximum unless you're really maxing the device out (lots of traffic, users, wifi going full bore).

Just care the ps doesn't get hot...

Peak draw can be more than 1 Amp...but average must not exceed that limit...

Lower is the voltage,upper will be the amps required...just Ohm law!

;)

Both Your PS can be ok for the Fonera.
