WTB: Gizmondo Charger

Recommended Posts

I have been having a lot of trouble trying to find a replacement charger for my Gizmondo - it uses a very small and specific plug type that is not seen in almost any other adapter, and no adapter I have seen seems to work. So, despite it being a fairly standard-looking plug, it seems I will need to find an official one. Anyone have any suggestions, or could you link me to a universal adapter than has worked for you?

It is not special....you can find that really thin tip in those universal type adapters that come with a lot of interchangeable tips. It is 6V positive tip. I used a universal with mine when I had one. I think mine was a Jensen and had a switch on the front that allowed me to select the 6V, but any that have the small tip and can do this should work fine.

Do you have a link to a place I can buy that adapter? I've tried at least three different universal power adapters, and none of them have fit.

If I am not mistaken (and I might be because it has been a LONG time) it was this one:

The smallest plug should do it. You can return it to Amazon if it does not work out. MAKE SURE to use 6V and the polarity is pos tip.
