Hello all

I am wanting to create a project on which I have multiple 12 v DC (PC fans) at 0.3A that run from the mains.

There will be 5 fans per bank. May I ask the best way to wire these so that there is no loss in power in any of the fans.

I am assuming that we obtain a 240v AC adaptor that converts to 12 DC, then run all 5 on a parallel setup. Is there anything else I should be aware of other than ensuring that I have enough current on the output of the adaptor to cover the load of the fans used.

Thank you for your time in regards to this matter.
