Recently after a clean out I seem to have thrown out the adaptor for a Cisco IP phone that I've been using.

The power input on the bottom of the phone says 48V, and this matches the specs I've been finding online. 

I've searched all over the net and found what I think is a picture of the one I had but I can't exactly remember, but this is near identical to the one I had: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cisco-PSA18U-480C-Switching-AC-Adapter-48V-0-38A-34-1977-03-A0-lot-of-two-2-/141142960211?pt=US_Network_Switch_Power_Supplies&hash=item20dcc6a853

 
 I dont suppose any of you have a spare one lying around somewhere? I thought this would be the place to ask before I go buying one online :P


Much appreciated,
- Sam

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand?

Just a thought. A lot of those phones do PoE too. Perhaps you have an adapter, or can get one cheaper than a power brick.

Hmm, that could be an idea. Where would I plug it though? I've never use PoE before, and theres only 2 ports on the unit for Ethernet: 100/10 LAN & 100/10 PC. Would I just plug it into the PC port?

edit: Sorry I should I have said earlier, the phone is a 7912 series, if that helps.

I have a 7912 sitting on my desk now :)

We have PoE via the switches but the average adapter is just a powerbrick that connects inline with the ethernet cable.

They need to be powered via the cable that connects to the SW port.

Yeahh done a bit of searching and apparently it uses a propriety version of PoE so would need a Cisco switch/PoE device that supports this standard. And they're about $40+ on trade me. Done suppose you could accidentally lose your power adapter in a courier bag to my house? lol

48 port switch out of the rack... do you think they'd miss it?

These things are pretty hit & miss with PoE because Cisco like their own "standards" as above, I tried 2 different generic PoE injectors here and neither worked on a 7940, the genuine 48V AC adapters are as rare as rocking horse poo and hugely expensive if you can find one.

Their (marginally) cheaper LinkSys PoE switches work fine. If you can find a generic PoE injector that uses their "standard" for $40, then I'd say that's not a bad deal.
