PowerPak II 12v
Upgrade your purchase with these options:
We’ve taken the best sounding switch mode power supply that we can find (and we’ve tested a few!) and then applied a number of Russ Andrews modifications that we believe give even better performance. Key capacitors have been upgraded to Russ’ favoured audiograde versions and we’ve fitted a woven KIMBER link cable for an effective connection to your equipment.
The 12v PowerPak II can be used on any piece of equipment that requires a 12v DC power supply no greater than 24w (watts) if you’re unsure please check with us before ordering)
Please check the specifications of your equipment/original PSU to ensure the PP II will fit and work correctly

The PowerPak II is suitable for a wide range of devices that require a low voltage 12v DC power supply. However, the voltage isn't the only consideration. Power supply rating (amps/watts) is also important as is the size of the DC connector.
Watts that Amp?
The PowerPak II can supply upto a maximum of 24 Watts or if your equipment lists its power requirement in Amps, it's 2A (2000mA). It is not safe to use the PowerPak II with equipment that requires power greater than 24W/2A at 12v.
Need more power? Then check out our superb Supplier which is available in a variety of voltages including 12v.
The PowerPak II is available fitted with a variety of connectors - 1.3, 2.1, 2.5, 3 etc..
These are the most common plug types found but there are a few different sizes that manufacturers use, so it's important to get the right one. 2.1mm or 2.5mm are the most common sizes used for 12v.
The 2.1mm / 2.5mm measurement refers to the diameter of the hole in the middle of the plug.
If you don’t know which size you require, completely disconnect the power supply and wait 5 minutes for any stored power to dissipate. Use a Vernier Micrometer or a slightly easier way is to use a known size of drill bit and poke it down the middle (you're looking for a good, tight fit!).
If you’re can take a Hi-res photo of the plug on your cable and email it to us, that is often all we'll need. But in some circumstances, it may be that you'll need to send us the original power supply for for inspection.
Wiring configuration (Polarity)
The PowerPak II is wired Centre positive (C+).
A DC power supplies polarity can either be centre-positive or centre-negative. Check the original powers supply you’re going to replace, as this information is should be shown on the label. Poliarity is shown by the direct line going from the positive or negative symbol into the centre of the circle.
