Hi! I have a camcorder that I need an AC adapter for, and I found a universal AC adapter at BestBuy that should do the trick accept for one thing: the voltage needed by the camera is 7.9v at 1.4amps. The universal adapter has two voltage settings that are close, but not exact. The adapter will supply enough current, so I know I'm fine there. One's 6.5v and the next one is 8.4v. So..if it seems to run ok at 8.4 volts am I ok?? I mean, do I run the risk of frying my Camcorder b/c I'm pumping too much voltage through it? Half a volt doesn't seem like a lot, but I thought I'd ask to be safe. The instructions for the adapter say "[this device] is fully regulated using high efficiency switching technology and features overload and short circuit protection."
