Re: DC power adapter

The primary windings are real thin. They can corrode off.

They are most all over rated for their use. They overheat and the windings short out then open. Get a higher current one and it will probably last longer.

I was thinking about getting one that lets you switch voltages and has a max output rating of 1.5A

Within reason larger is better. Larger rated unit wastes more power so you don't want to get carried away.

Try getting a switching power supply rather then transformer, as there are more efficient.
