Default Internet Hard-to-find product specialists! I call upon you!

My new (used) fish tank has two rows of moonlight LEDs. Only problem is one of the A/C adapters to power them is missing, so I need a 2nd one. Here is the one I have:



Label reads:

FLOŽ A/C Adapter
E311169
3KBM
ITE Power Supply
Model: FD35UD-12-150
Input: 120V - 60Hz - 90mA
Output: 12V-150mA

I have been unsuccessful. Any help will be appreciated. They don't have it at Radio Shack as best I can tell

The fact that the female connector is on this end of it is screwing me up. I can't find even a generic replacement with that end there

So the LED's have the male end that plugs directly into the AC adapter?

I'm no electrical engineer, but perhaps you can do a parallel tap into the AC adapter. so the one AC adapter would power both LED's strips.

Radioshack.


Seriously, it's not that hard. Just take the one you have in and they'll likely just find you a universal adapter.

If you can find a charger with the same specs that had a cord coming out of it, couldn't you just splice the two cords together?

I just got back from there. They don't have one that has the female connector in. Lowest mA they had in a universal was 300 also.

Shut the hell up. You wouldn't even know where to start looking anyway.

Neek, have you tried calling Flo? I *think* they were owned by one of the larger aquarium suppliers (like Tetra) but I'm not 100%. Haven't been in the aquarium game for about 5 years now. I will do some searching.

Looks like FLO was/is part of Perfect-A-Lite which is part of Perfecto which appears to be owned by Marineland?

Give 'em a call

That's your bro in law?!?!? I was there last week and was going to buy the setup with him, until I found someone selling the exact setup I wanted used. His shop is literally 2 minutes from my office. I might be stopping by tomorrow. What's his/your name?

Just grab a CCTV Female adapter and use and old 12V AC adapter to splice into, heat shrink it and you are good to go.

Make sure to measure your LED DC Male jack to make sure it is 2.1mm
