    1516You want the Voltage to be as high as possible, causing your current to be as low. This in general makes transport over UTP wires more effient (higher voltage = less loss) and causes your adapters to work more effient (AC->DC adapters tend to be more effient and last longer if you keep the voltage as high as possible).
