Not everyone knows that ALL of the Atari 2600 Power Supplies made back in the day, including original ones, were unregulated AC Adapters.
This means that the outputted voltage was not stabilized and, as a result, the poor A2600 was continuously feeded with a voltage fluctuating between 9,8V and 10,4V.
Not only - The provided current was unclean and badly filtered, which stressed the Console causing heat issues and premature failures.
Well, back in the day most of the issues on Consoles and Home Computers were caused by ICs dying after power pack failure.
The Deluxe Atari 2600 Power Supply is an efficient item which delivers a current which is not only stable, but clean and properly filtered.
Furthermore, being it tiny and lightweight, shipping is obviously much cheaper than a heavy, 30 years old, obsolete Atari 2600 AC/DC Adaptor.
In a bunch of words, the Atari 2600 Deluxe Power Supply adds longevity and relief to your console.
