Smaller power adaptor for DNS-313

Well, it seems like the power adaptors of D-Link products are more or less the same. I flipped through the power adaptors of my dlink products and found that I have a smaller two pin power adaptor rated at 12V/2A! The power brick of DNS-313 outputs at 12V/3A but the size isn’t really good for lugging it around to my friend’s house.

The power rating

Rated at 12V/2A

As mentioned earlier, the original power brick outputs at 12V/3A while this one outputs at 12V/2A. Plugged in the smaller power adaptor and crossed my fingers while the DNS-313 boots up.

Hurray! It seems like it has got no problem with it. Been running it for around 2 hours now, transferring files to and fro the DNS-313.

    You must have took the DIR655 one, ahha…
    Was wondering if it will be unstable when the load is high/exceeds 2A

    I suppose 3A caters to the spinning up of the harddisk, during normal access it should be less than 3A. Lets hope it doesn’t get unstable. :X
