Default no no no LOL!

The power rating is in MILLI amps 1/1000 amps
Not full amps. I can understand the confusion, if one is not familiar with electrical/electronic stuffs

800 AMPS is more power use than a HOUSE with everything on and running .

Your router is drawing less power than a 5 watt lightbulb.

You are okay.

No $1000 electrical bills for you. Not from your router, anyway

Default basic electricity 101

Wattage is voltage(in volts) times amperage(in amps)
you have a 12V router with a draw of 0.8 amps (800mA)
your wattage is .8x12 or 9.6 Watts

Again, you are okay
