How can I limit the current of my AC regulator?
I am having a problem with my AC regulator that I use with my gadget. The AC regulator supply 12volts and 2.66 amps when connected to the grid. My problem is that my gadget used to be charged using 12volts and .660 amp, I noticed that when I plugged the AC regulator and connect it to my gadget it gets really hot after a short period of time. I want to limit the 2 amps so that the regulator then produce the required current.
I have quite a bit understanding with electricity and I want to know what kind of resistor should I wire with my AC regulator for that to be able to supply the said amount of current. Also can I wire a thermostat or a fuse that will shut down the system if it gets to hot? Please help me anyone?
