Would someone be able to explain what 12V and 19V power supplies are? I know about the Dynamo 360, the HDPlex and the G-unique solutions. Im just really interested in the concepts, how the electrical works, whats the difference between 19V and 12V. Im not looking for recommendations, I just like learning about new things.

Many PC components run off 12v, so the 12v DC/DC power supplies require less circuitry to pass through power to those components than 19v DC/DC power supplies.

That said, most laptops run on 19v so there are many more AC/DC (power bricks) power supplies available.
