      Comments about Enercell™ Universal 1000mA AC Adapter:

      Needed a low voltage dc out wall power supply with enough amperage to power a few pc fans. This one worked perfectly for my needs and is a good choice for selectable voltage with decent current output.

      Charbed my 12v battery for about a month, now can't even charge it. Hums loudly when trying though. I would suggest looking at other products and avoiding this.

      Comments about Enercell™ Universal 1000mA AC Adapter:

      I purchased this several years ago and still have it. actually the one I bought has RadioShack written on it not enercell, and it ranges 1.5volts - 12 volts with selections for 1.5, 3, 4.5, 6, 7.5, 9, and 12 volts. MINE came with all the necessary tips though I'm seeing that nowadays you have buy the adapter tips you think you'll need. that would be a downside, however it's convenient not to have 6 ac adapters laying around.

          This adapter works better with some of my professional audio equipment than my $160 DC supply -- due to its low noise. It came with a used piece of gear. I was a little surprised when I researched it a found the high price, but I had previously raved about this to others. Excellent piece of gear, not a great value.

            • Must buy separate tips-7

            Best Uses

              Comments about Enercell™ Universal 1000mA AC Adapter:

              Yesterday I went to my local RS I've used for 30+ years to buy a 273-1776 12v/1A power 'brick' as described in my (older) RS catalog--which advertised that one adaptaplug (tip) is included in the price. The RS clerk told me the model # had changed to 273-0316 (as well as $$), so OK. I made reference at least once that I also needed the free M tip. When I got home, I found that it was a different brick (multivoltage, not a big deal) and there was AN ADDED $7 CHARGE FOR THE FREE TIP!
              I'm taking it back tomorrow. I now understand why there are rarely any customers in the store when I shop there. Other than piddly items for my projects (eg the occasional banana plug or jack), I think I might reconsider my shopping source.

                Comments about Enercell™ Universal 1000mA AC Adapter:

                You have to purchase each tip separately, that is a rip-off and leads to a poor value for this device. The Radio Shack universal chargers used to come with a whole collection of tips included in the price of the charger. This is not a good value due to the extra necessary purchase. Skip this

                The multi-voltage selector is a must, it makes this supply a multi-tasker... and the tip replacement is easy. High quality is why I always shop at The Shack!! BTW, to the guy that was trying to charge a cell phone with this device: THIS IS A POWER SUPPLY, NOT a charger... go back to Radio shack and ask them to show you the i-go chargers, I have 3 of them (car charger, home charger, and notebook charger) and my wife has 2.

                Comments about Enercell™ Universal 1000mA AC Adapter:

                Purchased to power Packet 8 ST2118 phone, which requires 500 milliamp, 12vdc.
                Got significant hum in the phone, which indicates to me poor filtering in the dc output. May be good for charging batteries, but I wouldn't use this to power an audio or telephone device.

                Either you are confusing this product 273-316 (1000mA) with 273-315 (300mA) or someone made a mistake with your order.
