Could this power supply act as a car battery for testing/repairing car stereos

This power supply could be used for anything that it can fit into, and that requires the same amount of power this part supplies.

Customer Reviews

12-Volt DC Plug-in Power Adapter is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! We already had the SkyLinkUniversal Remote Control Kit installed and had been using for the past two years. The remote control kit worked great for our older garage door opener that did not have a keypad, but eventually stopped working, and we couldn't figure out why. I contacted their customer service and adding the power adapter was their suggestion. As soon as we plugged in the adapter, the Skylink garage door opener and the keypad started working again! There must be a battery in the Skylink button that had eventually run down. Anyway, this is a great option if you have an older garage door opener that still works, and do not want to replace the whole thing. I installed the Universal Remote Control kit myself, it was pretty easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMALL PRICE.. BIG PAYOFF! I have a very old garage door opener.. a Chamberlain.. circa 1983. All the companies I phoned said that they didn't make remotes for my "Classic". I would need to replace the opener at a cost of $250-$300, installed. I didn't want to change something that wasn't broken.. I just needed a way to use it. Home Depot to the rescue! They had a Skylink adapter to match my newly discovered universal remote. Needed the extra power for it (my remote) to work. I put the two together and today, I have a FULLY FUNCTIONING garage door! Problem solved!! Tip #1 - Try this BEFORE any updates even if the garage door companies say it's not possible. Tip #2 - Home Depot now carries Skylink Remotes, Smart Buttons and Adapters. Ask for their advice. Tip #3 - Avoid shipping charges. Order online and arrange for in-store pickup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 12-Volt DC Plug-in Power Adapter Works with garage door opener remote fro which it was recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garage opener Worked like a charm...BUT I"ve got an older garage opener and wanted to convert to a non-dipswitched remote. I purchased HomeDepot's Defiant remote unit... I then found out that if you use it on an older garage opener, you need to purchase the 12-vold DC power adapter..... Not a problem, until I went back to HomeDepot to get one.... BUT... THE STORES DON'T CARRY THEM.... BOOO.. If you carry the remote, also carry the power supply!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You need this if you are upgrading from a pre-1995 system This power converter is DESIGNED and MADE for the garage door transmitter replacement of SKYLINK brand. (They make the Home Depot version.) If you have a DIGITAL garage door opener and are replacing it, you do NOT need the power supply. If you have an old ANALOG garage door opener (from the 20th century and is as large as your hand) -- you need this power supply. If you install the garage door opener replacement -the light blinks- and it does not work it might be because you had an old analog device. Otherwise if it works, you do not need the optional power supply. Because of the size of the connector, the polarity, and the amperage, YOU NEED THIS SPECIFIC DEVICE. Chances are minimal that you can find a 12 volt power converter with the same connector and amps anywhere else. Since it is only needed for replacing ancient systems, it must be ordered and is not found in stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adapter This adapter is required for older garage door openers. It should have been available in the store. So, it cost twice as much since I had to have it shipped to me.
