Need 110 AC to 12v converter help?
Am trying to put a boat radio on my patio, plugging into house current. The radio uses a 10amp fuse. All $5 converters I find on the net are for cell phone chargers and the like. I don't think they have the power I need. Have seen something about using an old PC power supply, but I'm not sure it will stand up to the weather, even though it will be in a box, and I don't know how to determine which outputs would be 12 volts. Anything I have found is WAY over budget...I'm trying to find something for less than $25. Am I on fools errand? Are there options I don't know I have? Any help is most welcome!
***REVISION*** I should qualify....the radio is actually an AM/FM CD radio, not VHF or Ham. Sorry for the confusion.
