Electrical advice needed


Active Member
I have a Sony dab radio that I listen to very occasionally, that runs off a 6v 0.8a mains adapter. This adapter has now failed. I know I can get a replacement, but I was wondering if I could use a 5v usb supply to power the radio, I have a usb lead with the same barrel plug, and I plugged this into a power bank and the radio seems to work fine.
What I need to know is, will this do any damage to the the radio or power supply.

As above , it will only pull the current it wants not be flooded by excess current if you see what I mean 👍
