This question already has an answer here:
My AC adapter reads... Output: +12V DC symbol 12.5A Input: 100-240V~ 50-60Hz 2.5A
I would like some clarification on if i'm reading/understanding this correctly. The input is the range in which the brick will work when I plug it into the wall and the output is what the brick pushes out for the computer (what the computer need to draw to power on when I turn it on). If say I were to have 20 of these same computers plugged in would I trip a standard 120V / 20A breaker in my home?
I know you add the Amps and make sure the total doesn't go over the 20A but am I using the 2.5A that the brick pulls or the 12.5A. Kind of a stupid question but its something that's always confused me when I look at it.
