Equipment / Wall Warts are nasty, RF spewing little balls of evil.

and I need to go buy one.
 I just dropped the Rat Shack 12v VDC 1000ma wall wart that was powering my PCR1000. Damn thing just shattered.
 Is there any model or supplier that is better than the others?

SDR - Software Defined Radio / Portable SDR

TL; DR  looking for a usb dongle SDR with general coverage and can be run by an android tablet.

 I'm looking for a suggestion for a new SDR. No I'm not giving up my NetSDR ( you'll pry that out of my cold dead hands) but I find myself in need of another radio.
 I'm typing this out from a remote campsite. Stiring life back into the campfire and drinking my second cup of coffee as the morning begins. I'm out here with ony two pieces of technology. My 10" Galaxy Note and the trusty Grundig G3. I think this scenario may be repeated many times in the comming years.  And as much as I like the G3 I miss the waterfall display. I may be addicted heh.
 So I ask this. Is there a SDR,  powered by usb, general coverage including the funny band, that can be run by an android tablet? I don't want to haul a lot of gear when I go camping,  but a SDR would be nice if it wasnt to bulky. 
 Any suggestions?
