Power Supply Lower Volts Higher Amps?

You should definitely look at a power supply's derating curve (see video above) before buying one - this can help you avoid the unpleasant situation of buying a power supply that can produce the desired output power, but not at the voltage and current levels that you want.

For many power supplies, the derating curve is a simple mathematical function, but -- especially in the case of switch-mode supplies -- it's still a good idea to check before buying.
