As long as the converter's output is greater than the demand of the device being supplied, all should be well.

Probably to be sure the device being supplied gets all it needs.
I tested the supplied AC adapter and it actually puts out 14 VOLTS..........not 12V .
Volts X Amps = Watts, and the meter you used likely did not place any significant amperage on the adapter. As the load goes up, the voltage does down.
