Hi all, bit of a beginner question here. According to the output section of the label, this is a 12V, 1000mA power supply. This is confusing me a bit. Is this device meant to output a constant voltage or a constant current?
My gut feeling is that it's meant to be a constant voltage source, and that the 1000mA value is some kind of failure threshold.
THEORETICALLY SPEAKING, would there be a danger if the (tampered with and exposed) terminals of the output came into contact with human skin (say, at the hand)? Surely 12V won't be enough to hurt anybody?
Also theoretically speaking, can I use this power supply (after voltage division) to act as a cheap power supply for my ESP8266 circuit? Or will this deliver way too much current and fry my delicate microcontroller chip?
Thanks for taking a look at my extremely beginner questions, I really appreciate it. I'm trying to get into a hobby here 😉
