NO, it is very under rated and powered. You need an 18 volt and not a 12 VOLT. They should not be that hard to find in an electronics store. Also the amp rating is also important. Make sure you are matching both amps and volts AC or DC to the the label on the woofer or you could end up blowing the out.

How many volts I have a charger that has different volts which one to set it on I have a whistler 1610 just trying to put the charger on the right voltage


Most automotive electronics work on a 12 Volt DC system. You must be using adapter capable of providing about 12 to 14 volts because car batteries provide 12 volts; but car alternators put out 13.8 volts. Do not attempt to connect to an adapter that put out AC voltage!

Printer will not power up using a 12 volt 1500 watt power inverter, but powers up ok on acdc poer at home.


pay attention on the input values of the printer....Some of them are not on 12V but on 18 ..or so ...and try to find a power adapter that will work on the inverter's value ..and exit the correct voltage and amperage

What would be the easiest way to change the voltage on a black n decker 18 volt battery to 12 volts? I will be using both voltages to run my application.


no easy way to change voltage
if you try to run an 18 volt tool with 12 volts, it just will not work may as well just throw a flat battery in it and pretend it is working

I am tryin to install a sony xplode amp and subwoofer in my car to the stock stereo but i dont know what wire to splice into for the rem on my amp


for a remote turn on you can use the acc off of the ing ( test 12volt when car is on befor crank goes to 0 during crank then comes back to 12 voltswhen car is running 12 volts also goes to 0 when ing is turned off and key is in off positon. 12 volts from the battery fused 12 inches from connection and ground. also are you using some sortof high level adapter for an audio signal( this would tap into left and right spks either front or rears and provde you with rcas for your amp

Vgn fs 980 adapter how to tell if it is not working


AC adapter? Test the output voltage.

Use a multimeter.
Stores like Radio Shack, Walmart, and auto parts stores, for a few examples have cheap one's you can buy.
About $12.

Set the multimeter knob to DC volts, and the 0 to 50 Volts scale.

The middle hole of the AC adapter plug is the Positive connection. This is where the Red lead goes.

The outer shield of the plug is the Negative connection. This is where the Black lead goes.

Look on the AC adapter for the OUTPUT VOLTAGE
(Not shouting)

Example:
I'm looking at an AC adapter for an IBM Thinkpad 370, right now.

INPUT: 100V 50-60Hz 130A
OUTPUT: 18V ~~~3.36A

The Output voltage is 18 Volts
The Output Voltage of your AC adapter should be close to this.

I have a sharper image midi and the red light (cleaning overdue)stays on even after cleaning? Will it still work with the light on? My real question how to fix it


Same problem : after cleaning thoroughly inside by removing the Front& Rear Plastic grid and the stainless blades, I also cleaned the 2wires (very softly and carrefully, not to break them), but the Redlight goes on after only few minutes :

Here is my Solution :
1 - Turn on (Low position) although the Red ligt is on
2 - Release the Rear plastic Grid (or Front plastic grid, or both of them) : That stop the unit automatically
3 - Replace it and make sur it's well locked : the unit turns on automatically.

After that, my unit works well, no more Red light. Maybe it will work for you. I also found this other bit of information. Since then I have discovered a lot of information on the midi. Here is some more reading material that might interest you.

Could be a blade replacement needed but Sharper Image2.gifrecalled the product. Since it was proven in court that it wasn'teffectively cleaning the air by Consumer Reports as well as EPA data. As a result of the legal action, Sharper Image filed for Chapter 11.
Here are a few links about it:

http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2008/02/sharper_image.html

http://www.epa.gov/iaq/pubs/ozonegen.htm

Sharper Image was giving customers a small rebate for the product since it was proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air by Consumer Reports as well data by the EPA.

This has caused a mess for Sharper Image that they went into bankruptcy as a result of it. The Consumer Products Safety Commissionis going to be making a decision on ionizers at the end of year sincethere are hazards in the air from using the devices. It could be thationizers are no longer sold in the US next year.

The industry should have been regulated and unfortunately the government never did anything about it until Sharper Image and Consumer Reports went to court on it. The next step to do if you can't get it to work is to file a report with the company.

The Ionic Breeze would work for a short time after cleaning and the bluelight would start flashing again. We checked the wall cube power adapter with a volt meter. It was putting out only 10 volts instead of the needed 12 volts. It seems The Ionic Breeze needs a full 12-13 volts to work. So we went to Radio Shack and bought a universal 12 volt 800ma power adapter. I checked the voltage in the new adapter, it was 13 volts. This fixed the flashing blue light problem. The Ionic Breeze produces harmful Ozone gas, so we don't use it anymore.

Best wishes. Hope this helps you. If not please leave me a comment and I will do some more research.
