12V <- Only, no more, no less
2.5A or 3.0A, most people are getting. Which equates to 30watts or 36watts
Don't buy (pay) for something less than 2.5A, cause the included one is 2.0A, You would you just keep using that one for free, if you can't find better.
There's disagreement here on going as high as 4.0A or 5.0A, but those are more rare and expensive typically anyway.
I've been suggesting this LiteOn, because there are a lot of them in circulation (from returned cable boxes) on eBay, it keeps the price low. Physically fits so has been tested in that way.
Those specs are:
Output: 12V 2.5A 30W
Part Number: 4019611B
AC Adapter Model: PB-1300-02SA
Barrel Connecter size:
- Int. Diameter: 2.50mm
- Ext. Diameter: 5.50mm
Delta's a good brand too, but you'd have to check the Barrel Size is right.
Really don't pay more than $15 for something used. There's cheaper things in new.
