There's a gap in the available tags. The only tags with “power” in the name are and . If we believe their descriptions, then is for RF power levels only (though it doesn't say that) and is for, well, power supplies.

The gap in this tagging scheme is that there is no tag for questions about DC power but not power supplies (e.g. 12V power distribution). We currently have 5 such questions, 4 of which are tagged .

I think that it would make sense to create a tag for the topic of getting power to equipment — hence including not just AC-to-DC power supplies, but wiring, solar power, interference/grounding issues in power wiring, etc.

The first name that comes to mind for such a tag would be , which I think is pretty good, but I'd rather one that doesn't specifically exclude AC line power. (We could declare that includes these things, following the argument I once heard that a power supply is not just that conversion box (a power adapter) but also everything connected to the input side of it, but I think that's an argument that's been lost.)

Any suggestions?


(I also propose to rename current to , to make misuse less likely.)
