These devices generally cost less than $50 and it you're wiling to work with an assembled circuit board, are frequently available for less than $30.


I had a pleasant surprise like that with the last TV I bought. Boxing Day sale, only a few hundred for a 32" flat screen. Got it home and discovered the wall wort puts 12V DC into the TV.

Now I just need to convince the DW to both let me take it camping with us and to go dry camping so I can try it out.
