#### exists and is an alternate of .

Absolutely.
As long as the converter (or any power source) is rated at the same voltage, with more current than the device needs.

Sometimes, a device may have a higher initial current surge than it's operating current, keep this in mind. Some converters do a good job handling momentary surge, some don't.

# How do you convert 5v DC to 12v DC?

Converting 5 Volt DC to 12 Volt DC . Best thing to use, (well, at least the quickest) is a DC to DC converter module.

# How do you convert 240 AC to 12v DC?

Depends what current out you want. Step-down transformer and a bridge rectifier and smoothing curcuit, or switch mode supply. Spend less than a tenner and buy a battery charge

# How you convert the 12V DC to 220V AC?

Use Inverter. Use Inverter

# How do you convert 12v DC to 5v DC?

"How do you convert 12v DC to 5v DC?" . Simple use a 2.25 ohm 25watt ballast resistor;renault used them to drop the voltage for the Engine control computers.

# Convert 12v to 3v DC?

if you have 12v dc then you can use a 4 ohm resistor

# How you convert the 220v AC to 12v DC?

First you need a step down transformer. A step down transformer has less turns of copper in secondary then in primary.You can calculate with this formula # of primary turns/V

# How do you convert 220 ac to 12v DC?

You'll probably have to have a step-down transformer to take the 220vac down to 110vac. Then you'll have to have an Ac to Dc converter box to change the Ac to Dc volts. The

# Can you use a 12v dc 500mA powerpack on a device that required a 12v dc 1A?

By power pack, I'm assuming that you mean transformer or power adapter? It's not recommended. One of three things may occur - 1) The powered device will fail due to undercur

# Convert 24V DC to 12V DC?

24V to 12V 400W DC Inverter . 24V to 12V 400W DC Inverter . 24V to 12V 20A 400W DC to DC Inverter. Does little to change my PV system 12v 24v me the problem arose of what

# Convert 230v ac to 12v dc?

use 230v to 12 v transformer after use rectifier circuit.

# Can a 12v 550ma device be run by a 12v 210ma supply?

No, the supplies output is too small. To run a 550mA device a supply source of 600mA and larger would be needed.

# Can you run a 12v device off 13.8v?

Yes, if the device has a built in step down transformer. Think of it this way, the electricity in your household is a typical 230v. Mobile phones tend to use 6v of electricity

# How you convert a power supply into 12v DC?

DC 12V power supply can convert 110/220V AC power source to 12V DC.

# How do you convert 12v DC in to -12v DC?

You cannot convert 12VDC to -12VDC. However you can get these two voltages simultaneously by using a centre-tap transformer secondary. One half of the centre-tap, depending on

# Can you use a 12v DC 2A adaptor on a 12v DC 1A device?

Yes, no problem whatsoever. The adaptor will only be operating at 50% of it capacity.
