I'm working on a VERY custom 120VAC to 5VDC power supply and I've looked over the new DOE efficiency standards and I've noticed that they have changed the Max power in the No Load mode to 100mW for my power output. Given the complex design of the power supply I do not think that I can meet this condition at this time. What are the repercussions of not meeting the DOE efficiency standards? I would still like to get this power adapter UL certified so I'm hoping this won't be a problem there either. Any insight would be helpful!
