Return of the Linear/Magnetic Wall Wart for the US Market

Post by mediatechnology »

Linear transformer-based wall warts literally disappeared from the market a number of years ago due to EU efficiency regulations.

Triad magnetics has re-introduced "wall mount" transformers and DC supplies for "industrial and commercial applications" only for the 60 Hz US market.
