Re: 12 Volt linear (not switching!) wall wart


I know I can build one - and have done so, and I know "larger" linear power supplies are readily available, but I have several electronic devices scattered about the household that use 12 Volt wall warts that all radiate to some degree. I would like to have quiet, unobtrusive replacements for these.

You might want to consider building your own.  Start with an 18-0-18 volt transformer from MPJA (, a bridge rectifier and filter capacitors, then add a 7812 voltage regulator and you will have a good linear power supply rated at 1 amp (the max rating of the 7812 regulator).  You should plan to add a heatsink for the regulator.

Anyone have a line on a 12 Volt linear wall warts? There used to be so many... Trying to cut down on the RFI in my house, and switching wall warts seem to be a big contributor and about all I can seem to find.

I'm looking for something that gives about 1 amp at 12 Volts and is regulated. Linearly! And is not terribly expensive so I can buy a few of them.

I suppose an alternative would be a very RF quiet switching wall wart if someone has first hand knowledge of one of those......
