Looks ok. You can also check for a similar rated for more amps.

Interesting, the camera did not come with a Power Supply?

No.. the New ASI 1600MC-Cool (color)(USB) dose not come with a power supply. Not yet anyways.

I use a Kendricks 5A Quad power pack (34mAhr) that seems to work very well.
Also have a lighter duty Celestron Powertank which works too.

Is that the same for the ASI 1600MM-Cool as well?

The ZWO website user manual in the following link says its 2amp max??

https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/ma ... ameras.pdf

The ZWO website link for the ASI 1600 says 2.5 amp here

https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/pr ... 00mm-cool/

It says 12v - 2amp on the back of the ASI 1600MM as well

I'm a bit confused as to the amp requirement

yes, the power consumption of our cooled cameras are nearly the same
2A is the max current it need

but you'd better choose an AC-DC adapter can provide more than 2A current
