Sometimes the power supply doesn't say DC, it just has the symbol. It may look like a dotted line, with a solid line above it. AC symbol is a sine wave.

Anyways, the fans and whatever else you are wanting to run should have a current (amperage) value. If they have watts (W)  on them instead of amps, you'll have to convert it. Google "Power Wheel" for the formula.

1000mA (milliamps) is equal to 1A (amps)

Hope this helps!
thanks this will help me rule out the ones I have and narrow my search for a new one. Much appreciated.

Yeah, he's not just a pretty face.

It's going to be one of those days.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

I was going to say that, but didn't want to be accused of anything.
