I believe that you would be ok. Voltage has to be "Spot on." Amperage, however, needs to "meet or exceed." Think of Voltage as pushing something into something. Think of Amperage as pulling something out of something. It won't draw more amps than it needs, even if they are available. Allow me to thank you for including the powerpayless website as until your post I didn't know what voltage I was looking for. Exactly the same thing happened to me with my SimpleTech 1TB. Perhaps we both solved eachother's problems. PS: I'm going to check with Radio Shack for a 12v adaptor with at least 3.5 Amp capacity. They might can beat the $30.00 which is what the above mentioned place gets including shipping.

What is the voltage of the Power Cord? Lost the power cord.


There should be a sticker or a stamp of the input and output voltage right next to the plug in. If it is the one coming from the wall it is a 120v and you just need to match the ends. If it is a smaller round one it is going to be 6 to 18 volts.

Power cord


If the voltage is the same, and the current of your replacement adapter is equal to / greater than the original, it should work perfectly fine.
BUT..
The only thing to pay attention to is if it is AC or DC. AC requires nothing more for you to do. DC however, will require that you have the proper polarity: PLUS (+) and MINUS (-) on the mating plug contact points. If you guess at this, you have a 50/50 chance of turning it into "toast". If the socket is unmarked, contact the manufacturer to obtain polarity information BEFORE connecting!
Good luck!
