the link in the bom is broken. If there is another that you know works available in the US please share.

this is the one I'm looking at:

No. It's DC, you need AC.

And one post is enough :)

Ok, that explains why an old wallwart from fry's made it sound so horrible. Sorry about the double post. I've got one that is 9v 1000ma but that seems like a bit much.

Do you have a voltmeter?
Measure it. Does it shoot much higher than 9v?
If not, 9v 1000ma ac will work.

I ended up buying a couple AC 9v 500ma with 2.1mm and 5.5 mm adapter from that distributer. They work great. Thanks for catching that.
