You can also use a ColecoVision joystick plug in place of the standard ADAM power plug, but you have to make sure to get the wiring right (of course!!!). I built mine that way and have had no problems with it.

 

Hi.

I possibly found the B plan I'm looking for : https://www.youtube....h?v=EbR6ODH1jhA

Thanks for your advises.

 

You can follow my simple guide to build one for about $20.00

 

Glen, did you realize it is a link to your video I quoted in the post that is just before yours :-).

 

I'm currently following this path but please note in the side of the Atlantic ocean Mean Well power supply cost in about twice the price you mentionned (about 35€ VAT included !), so the total cost for the PSU plus cable will be closer to 40€ !!

Yes, I did 😊, just wanted you to know I followed the post ☺.

Still not bad..a price really. A friend made a 3D printed case that I need to test fit...if ok will release it.

OK. Thanks for letting me know.

Best wishes for recovery for Rey's familly.

 

In meantime, does someone has a B plan to suggest ?

  Thank you my friend. It's been awhile since I was on here. I appreciate the support and hope to be back and active sooner than later. Things still aren't great and am dealing with health issues myself.  I especially wanted to thank dmcdream and TPR for their patience and understanding who have been waiting a long time for me to finish their mods due to this situation. 

 

  My hope is to have another run of these sometime this year after I finish with Rob and Allen.

Hi everyone.

 

It took a while but I followed Glen's advises and video to cable a power supply from the Mean Well PSU.

I order the PSU on eBay from a UK supplier as a result the PSU itself costed me 33€ (about $38 today) including shipping.

 

I ran the Adam/Coleco for about 5 hours without any problem :-).

Yes this is the power supply that I found 2 years ago and have been using since then on multiple systems (my post was Glenn's inspiration). I am created a custom system around this that will be available next month:

Hi Milli.

I guess the PSU can also be used for the C64 and the Amiga family, right ?

Looking at your picture I see 110v input. Why not add a 240/110v selector to gain potential European customers... like me ?

It doesn't need a selector switch - it does it internally:

 

Input Voltage (VAC) 88 to 264
Input Frequency 47 to 63
