What exactly are amperes anyway?

If I use a 19.5 volt 4.7 ampere adaptor with a device that calls for a 19.5 volt 3 ampere adaptor, will it cause any problems?

One USB charger to replace lots of wall warts?

Like most mefites, I have far too many gadgets, and the wall warts to match. I suspect most of them could be replaced with a single USB charger - is this something that already exists? [more inside]

I need a UK to US transformer for a rechargeable drill.

TransformerFilter: I've just relocated to the US and have a rechargeable drill that uses a 17V DC transformer. I need to replace the transformer, since the one I have runs on 240V power (and has the UK prongs). The problem here is that I can't find a suitable replacement at the likely suspect places: hardware stores, Radio Shack...

I know that the voltage must match precisely and that the amperage must be at least as high as the noted amperage, and that the polarity must also match. So where can I go to find a good transformer? I'm in NYC, but I prefer to shop online.
