I got it because the specs write up said it was able to put out 12vdc to 19vdc in what seemed to be steps and had a specific tip size I needed for my device. Turns out that there is no "voltage settings" control like seen on most multi output power supplies I've used in the past - instead this P/S seems to be using tips that have various resistance loading to achieve a voltage or wiring that connects each tip to the appropriate point on the P/S rectifier coil that gets the voltage. In any, event the, the tip I wanted and "12VDC" output was actually an unloaded ~10.5VDC (measured with a multimeter). The device I wanted to power did seem to like the power output and turned on without smoking ;> The upside is that this power supply is mostly designed for laptops and appears readily able to match up to a wide array of models. I did not test it for what actual output voltages were achieved with which tips, but suspect that they are all likely light on actual output vs the "named" voltage output. As an aside - I was testing other "12VDC" power cubes looking for a match before getting this PS and they also measured at ~10VDC even though marked as 12VDC Output - so light output may be a generally standard practice for makers. I got this one because none of the others I found locally had enough Amp capability - this one has it in spades.
