Hi.
I have a black 3.5" ICY BOX IB-351StUS-B External Hard Disk Enclosure. It comes with an AC power adapter. The problem is... I have a pile of power adapters of different kinds and I don't remember which one came with the ICY BOX enclosure.

I looked all over the enclosure, inside and out, to find some kind of indication as to what voltage it requires... but found nothing. There's only the small hole with the pin inside it and it says "DC IN".

I found a 12V adapter which I somehow suspect is the one - but when googling my ICY BOX model I came up with specs and photos showing an adaptor (voltage not specified) that looks different from the one I have. In the photos it comes as two parts - 1. cable to AC 2. transformer box with cable to encloser.

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to electronics and stuff... so I need help here. Don't wanna blow up my hard disk... :/

Thanks!
