It would appear that mine does as well. I never looked at it closely,
since it looked like a brick or wall-wart was supposed to fit into the
styrofoam packing. I guess nothing went there.

Thanks for the offer, but I thought it needed a wall-wart or something,
which is what I wanted to know the output voltage of.
