    So I have an ethernet switch that draws 12V, 0.35A, but a power supply that supplies 15V, 1.10A. Found it as the same plug type since the previous power supply is MIA, anyone know if this is this safe to use? Thanks guys

    I figured it might, I ran it for 3 seconds as a test and it was fine, but long use it'd kill it. Damn, need to find a new power supply at the right rating. Is there a store online that sells things like this? It's just a straight to wall AC power supply:

    Output: 12VAC ~60Hz .35A

    Edit: Looks to be a 1/4" coaxial plug
