Replacement AC Adapter question

This should be a really easy question for someone to answer. I have just bought a Mindprint DI-Port from Ebay, and need to replace the wall wart transformer when it arrives in Australia as it was purchased from the US and came with a 110 volt adapter. The Specs for the transformer as written on the back of the unit are 12VAC/700mA, but I cant find a transformer to suit those specs. I can easily buy a 12VAC/500mA or a 12VAC/1amp adapter though. Are either of these adapters going to be safe to use with the Mindprint or should I keep looking for one that matches perfectly?

If the requirement is 700mA, you need to supply that as a minimum. A power supply can't PUSH current through a device, so as long as you have 700mA or more you'll be 100% OK.

Match voltage requirement. Exceed current requirement. Buy the 1A unit - You'll be fine.
