    Hello,

    unfortunately my power supply of my new sp3 is broken. I already ordered a new one, but it will take some
    time until the new power supply will be there. I really would like to use my sp3, so I have been thinking about replacing the broken power supply by another one. From my old asus netbook I have a power supply with 12V and 3.0 A output.

    Is it possible to use this one for loading?

    I have been searching in different forums about the replacement of a power supply, I always read, that an egual voltage is necessary and that the amperage can be higher, the device should handle the correct amperage.

    What do you think about this?

    Thanks!

    I don't see how. Isn't the proprietary connection the segment that is connected to the power supply? (the big brick)

    The sp3 has a proprietary connector. Unless you're willing to take the risk of fire and damage, the only way you'll get it working is by splicing the cables. I do not recommend you do this at all.
