Our Mission As host of the pfSense open source firewall project, Netgate believes in enhancing network connectivity that maintains both security and privacy. Switching power supplies will operate most efficiently at the top end of their design power so the smallest PSU you can use is usually most efficient. What are the benefits? Additionally a high efficiency PSU reduces the need for cooling and heat is a very big issue in laptop design. So there is some additional power there. T – fully compatable.
