   That's opposite everything I was ever taught. As long as the voltage
and DC polarity are correct, and the power supply provides at least
enough amperage for the device, the device itself determines the amount
of power it draws. The big worry is that a slightly under-amped PSU can
toast itself trying to keep up.
