Anybody know what this is?
A.A. Milne once said "One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries."  I like this quote a lot.  In part, because it goes with another quote that I made up ... "An absent-minded professor is redundant."

Case in point:

Over the weekend, I was working on cleaning up desk stuff, trying to figure out why the camcorder wouldn't work.  Eventually I figured it out; it wasn't plugged into the proper power adapter, so it wasn't charging.

Of course, once I dug out the power adapter, I couldn't figure out what it was actually for.  Everything else on the desk appears to be plugged in and working correctly.  So ... what's this thing?

It's a Model GFP051U-0510.  Input is AC 100-240V, 50/60 Hz, 0.15A.  Output is DC 5V, 1A.  The tip is 1/8", black edge, positive center, negative shield.  I tried Googling the model number, but all it tells me is that the adapter was made in China.

So ... any idea on how I can figure out what this is?

So, you're saying it doesn't go with the camcorder?

I've got a closet full of wall-warts. No idea where most of them go. Been saving them for years.

It's easier to match a new wall-wart to a thing than it is to find the thing that matches an old wall-wart.

Power Adapter

Mine is the ac power adapter which came with a GE USB 2.0 4-Port Tetrahub - a mini USB-hub which can be used with or without ac power.
