I know cheap and quality don't go together but there is a cross point between cheap rubbish and overpriced quality. Wanting something reliable/safe/meets electrical standards (not a burn your house to the ground soldered together by a 4 year old in Shenzhen unit with a piece of sellotape separating the mains and neutral). After a laptop style power supply but open to options, want it to power led lighting

Check out trade me for old routers that come with a 12V supply? If you're lucky you might be able to put in a low bid and no-one escalates the price.

I replenished my stock when dick smith failed so have not had to get any more since then.

 

A friend ordered a box of 50 legit ones off alibaba.

I've got a surplus waterproof (well, I wouldn't put it in the rain but supposedly you can) LED lighting power supply you can have for, I dunno, $15? It's just been sitting there since I replaced it with an alternative unit.

I will have to ask when I see him, but basically looked at a decent quality one that came with a locally bought HDD, found the supplier on there and ordered the minimum they would do as a sample run.

OpShops normally have a basket of old powersupplies and chargers. Cheap and normally from mainstream brands. E.g 12v 2Amp compact switchmode wallwart which originally came with a linksys router $2.
