Where to buy a 24v DC power adapter in Canada?


I have a device that needs 24V DC. I could only find an AC adapter that went that high, not DC. Anywhere online I can buy stuff like this? Hoping to not have to pay much. Don't need much as far as amps go. 0.5 or more is good enough.

Thought thought of using an AC adapter which I can get locally, and building a bridge rectifier came to mind, but probably be more expensive by the time I buy diodes and stuff.

I have a box full of wallwarts of all different outputs, from 1.5v to 30v or so dc.
I'll look and see tomorrow if I have one 24v DC.

That would work.

I've also toyed with the idea of daisy chaining two computer power supplies, but that would be like 5x the size of the item I want to power. LOL
