4.2Amp 4-Pin Style Power Adapter

This power adapter is for certain OWC Mercury Elite Pro and Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus storage solutions and enclosures with a DC 12V power input accepting a 4-pin type connector.

This power adapter is NOT compatible with 5 pin plugs used with OWC Mercury Elite, OWC Mercury Elite-AL, OWC Neptune, and NewerTech miniStack storage solutions/enclosures. Those adapters require a DC 5V/12V 2A Power Input accepting a 5 pin style connector.

For 5-pin connection power, we recommend the OWC 5-Pin Power Adapter.

Rating: 4/5 works great September 19, 2014 I bought this because I misplaced my other one, it got here quickly and works just fine. Of course I have now found the other one, but spares can be good things too.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 Saved my Iomega UltraMax Pro drive June 28, 2014 I have a 2 TB Iomega UltraMax Pro RAID drive which started behaving strangely and eventually died completely. I thought it was gone for good, but a web search suggested replacing the power transformer with this one. Sure enough, the drive is now as good as new with all of my data intact.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
