Power supply

Post by redfinger » Mon Feb 13, 2017 12:01 am

I picked up a lighting kit for my Anigrand Star Destroyer. It did not come with a power supply. The instructions indicate I need to provide the 12v power supply. I have no idea where to find that. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

It's best to ask from whom you bought the lighting kit from.

Although it says 12 volts, they might be able to answer in terms of huch current is needed. Normal wall adaptors can be form 12volts 500mA to 12volts 1000mA. Powerful ones can start from 12 volts 3A (or 3000mA)

I just ordered a number of supplies, LEDs and Power Supply. You may want to try HDA Model Works, they have a number of supplies that maybe just what you are looking for. I just spent $30.00 + on LEDs and yes a Power Supply. They have 9v and 12v

Evan Designs offers reasonably priced 12V regulated power supplies:

I've bought lots of stuff from them and they are a reliable supplier.
