The power supply for my WD My Book Essential hard drive is not working.

Appreciate if you guys can help me on looking for a replacement for this power supply, preferably in Amazon.

I have looked for it online, but haven't been able to find the same one. Maybe there is another similar I can get?

Did a little research, and found that maybe I can one with following specs:
12 volts
1.5 amps
18 watts
Type A
Type: NEMA 1-15
5.5mm outer-diameter
2.5mm inner-diameter
Outer Connector (-)
Inner Connector (+)

But this information is not exactly as shown in the attached picture.

Thanks

Make sure the voltage is identical.
You can use a higher watt, or amps. Because the power supply does not decide what goes out, the Laptop will draw the amps it need regardless. If you use a lower watt device it will over heat and burn out over time.
