Lii 500 power supply

So my LII 500 power supply died, as apparently they have a habit of doing.
Just wondering if it is a common fault, easy to check for and fix, or is it not worth opening the sealed unit to have a go?
Should I just go out and buy a generic 12V 2 or more amp power supply and forget the LII unit?
Any idea on the LII tolerances for 12V? will it accept lead-acid battery charging voltage of 14.7 or so without risk or should I be looking for a properly regulated supply very close to 12V?
Does the 12v cigarette lighter plug have any smoothing circuitry or is it just fused raw battery voltage?

Beam me up!

I'd just grab a better 12 volt wall wort .A car is regulated at like 14.5volts max . 13.7 v. is common from your car. here it's easy to find lots of 12volt wall worts .

 The  liito kala AC power supply is JUNK and mine sparked a couple times /crackled and then finally popped .I should have known the crunching sound was a bad thing. I was happy to see it go.

 The fact it comes without the AC plug means they knew they were having a problem in the first place
