1. Owning a SB3 i'd like to know if i can use a 5V-3A power supply, considering that the SB3 supposedly needs 5V-2A.

2. How do i know if the power supply is center positive?

Thanks

1) yes
2) you need a test meter!

Does the 5V/3A power supply in question not have the small diagram on back pointing to the center as positive?

Thanks, so an higher Amp value will not damage the unit?

No - the device only draws what it needs.

(current and voltage are different in this respect)
