I'm going to have to keep this in mind.

So are the lower voltage AC Adapters that will work on Famicom readily available in the US?

I'm wondering if I should buy a couple extra in my last months here before coming back to the states... Keep stocked up just in case.

Hmm the second one ("HQ") looks better although both look a little cheap Smiley and probably won't be ideal but would do ok.
So if you use the second one, set it to 9V and the polarity should be set like it is pictured on the lower picture - there is a plug on the cable that can be switched/turned, minus must be inside! (the small arrows must face each other)... post a pic of it if you like to check it's all right.

Thanks for the info.

I will post a pic in a few minutes.

But what should i get then ? instead of these cheap things something like a universal laptop adapter???  i really have no idea....

And also i cannot set the Polarity on the HQ one because i thought it was a switch but actually its just a LED :/

Thanks.

Remember this: Big and heavy (and expensive) is better than small and lightweight (and cheap). Or search for something from a well known manufacturer.

Should be okay (the Famicom), but do not try that adapter again. Those cheap adapters can have different output than is written on them. Try to measure the output if you can.

I don't k ow what you mean by 'readily available', but I have around 600 of them (NOS high quality, solid ones from the 90s, not the cheap-o junky featherweight ones made today) in stock. Available at local stores? That depends on the area...

For some reason I can't find the correct dimensions for the twin famicom power supply plug.
I have a 2.5x5.5 mm that fits. Is that the best measurement?
