Adaptec web site returns the following...

The replacement power supply must meet these specifications:
5 Volt DC Output with at least 2.5 Amperes capacity. The DC connector is configured with positive (+) on the internal or center lead and negative (-) on the external.

What's the amperage of a Whistler Fuzzbuster F4500 Radar Detector?

First its not a Whistler product, its a Fuzzbuster product. The unit's power cord should be fused with a 2 amp fuse and the center pin of the plug is positive.

Keeps blowing internal breaker

The unit rated at 3 HP at 115 volts draws 13.8 amps is odd, a HP in watts is 745 and should be about 2200 watts and 19 amps plus a efficiency loss. Odd to see the ratings don't jive with electric theory/formulas.
The compressor should be connected directly to the wall and if using an extension cord, the cord needs to be #12 AWG or larger to avoid line voltage loss and over amping of the motor.
Here is contact and support info: For more information, please call 800/4-MAKITA (800/462-5482) or visit
My bottom line is, A 115V motor circuit needs 10 amperes per horse power or 30 amp circuit for 3 horse power. Using extension cords calls for upgrade in wire gage of the cord. The advantage of using 230 volts is it cuts the amperes in half and allows use of smaller gage wire. Watts, or volt amperes is the product of volts and amps.

How can i staight wire this

It is a bad idea to use ANY power cord other than the one provided. Using an AC/DC adapter that has different amps or volts can result in damaged equipment in the long run. You can find power specs on the back of the unit. A cheap replacement can be ordered. Ex; if you use a iPad charger on an iPhone, it charges faster, but kills the bat 4_29_2014_4_03_00_am.png

No power ac or dc IFR 1200 super s

Try another Cord/charger, with the EXACT same power specs, without the battery installed. If it works on the AC/DC cord/charger, replace the battery with a genuine battery with the exact same power specs.

I have a maxstar 150 tig welder that i take with me in our race car trailer, the trailer has a 6.5KW onan NHE generator in it, the welder fails to turn on with this generator, i checked volatge and freq...

Here is the spec sheet for your welder. The only problem that I can see is maybe your power cord is too small. As you can see on the spec chart, the minimum the machine will draw at 115 volts is close to 20 amps. Now your have to multiply that by 1.5 for transformer surge. So now you are looking at 30 amps, which means you will need size 10 gauge wires in your extension cord. If you are going to do some heavier welding, you may even need to go to a #8 cables. What happens also, when you try to draw a lot of current, the generator will bog down, thus providing less power. It would be better if you could use 230 volts.

I'm assuming you mean the power cord. Most of these units use standard power cords. Take it to an appliance parts store to match it. If you can't find the cord you want, extension cords called heavy duty are available. Be sure that the power draw on the label on the cord equals or exceeds that of the unit. Some cords use 'amps'...some appliances use watts. To get amps from watts: take the wattage, divide by volts (typically 120) to get amps. A 1200 watt appliance uses 10 amps. Use the next highest rating.
