    I have an Ozone unit, misplaced the power supply; I have a replacement but wondering if I will fry it up if I use it. The O3 unit requires 18V 0.3A and my power supply is 18V 1.1A, will it work on the unit?

    Thx !

    Yeah, most power supplies are voltage sources not current sources (unless you are working with LED ones like Meanwells). That basically mean its rated for up to 1.1 amps, the unit will be happy for the 18V, and will only suck as much as it needs (0.3 amps)
