Not even remotely. The original Acorn Atom PSU was 8v at about 1.5A DC
if I remember correctly. I "acquired" one from my Dad's work when it
wouldn't work, or more accurately would work for only a few minutes
before turning itself off. The scorch marks on the inside of the case
around the heatsink bolts were a dead giveaway...

Fully loaded, with every socket filled, it drew nearly 3A.
