Why does the 1810G-8 Switch package include two power adapters?

I bought several 1810G-8 Switches but paused when I found two AC-DC power supply adapters inside the box. 

 

The slightly smaller of the two is a slim, wall-wart style, HP part number 5184-5863, Output 12v, 1.085A.

 

The other is a brick, two-piece style that an AC extension cable plugs into, HP part number 5188-6700, Output 12v, 1.25A.   However, there is no AC extension cable included in the box!

 

Secondly, next to the power socket, the 1810G-8 clearly shows it requires 12v, 1.25A.

 

So, which power adapter should be used - the more convenient wall-wart that doesn't appear to output enough power, or the 1.25A that doesn't include the power cable?

 

I'm only bothering to ask because the 1810G-8 will be installed in a remote location and I want the installation to go perfectly and never look back.

 

Thanks!
