The modern ‘switch mode’ power adaptors we use are far more energy efficient than transformer power supplies but occasionally can emit a low level, high-frequency whine when not under load. This typically happens when the unit is in standby mode. This does not indicate a faulty adaptor, but if you experience such an issue and feel that the whine is unacceptable then please contact us for assistance.
