these seem to litter the internet and now one has found its way into a box of crap that I received. Though it is POE, I really am not equipped to utilize that. SO I am wondering if anyone has one of these with the original PSU that plugs into the barrel connector so I can find out the actual voltage and current for this. Yes I could just find something that works but I would much prefer to pair it with something within its manufactured range.

THANKS!

Ya, something is amiss, the part number points to a 5v 3~a psu but this thing wont start booting until I plug in the 6v speaker power supply. Would be really helpful if some one had a physical one to look at.

so then just use that or get a new 6v 3amp dc adapter. that's close enough to spec that it wont matter.
