Default Re: AC / DC ADAPTER upgrade?

There would be potential issues from the output terminals of the AC inlet to the wires to the output plug:

Input rectifier current rating

Switch MOSFET or IC

Current sense resister in the switch source circuit

"Transformer" primary and output winding wire gauge

Output rectifier current rating

Output harness wire gauge

Even current-carrying traces on the primary and secondary sides could have issues
