Ray Carlsen releases new power supplies and adapters

Good news! In his understated way, Ray Carlsen writes:

O.K., here are more details, all found at




The mini C64 p.s., priced at $55 plus shipping, is rated 5VDC @ 4 amps and 9VAC @ 1 amp. The very custom M-AM/64/128-2D p.s., priced at $140, powers a C64/128/VIC-20CR and disk drives, or with the flip of a switch, an Amiga 500/600/1200. Now on the webpage, the VIC-20E two-prong p.s., priced at $35, outputs 9VAC @ 3 amps. The C64-to-128 p.s. adapter and the C128-to-64 p.s. adapter are $15 each. (Not pictured is his heavy-duty p.s. for the Amiga CD32.) All of these are in addition to his other C64/128/VIC-20CR and Amiga 500/600/1200 power supplies!


At




there is another addition/improvement. It is the "Deluxe Box" Computer Saver and PS Tester, priced at $50. Not only does it prevent overvoltages from original CBM power supplies, but it also "allows p.s. testing without being connected to a computer."


Truly,

Worth the investment I would say. I need to contact him again to get one for my Plus/4.

I know I have bumped topics about Ray before, but every time I see one and had not I feel compelled to :)  Ray is just such a great guy, and old school. Be prepared to write a check or get a money order! But, that is just fine as Ray makes bar none the BEST power supplies you are ever going to get and can customize them any way you like.

 

In my situation I wanted a PSU that can allow both a CR VIC-20 *and* a C64 to be powered on at the same time (or two C64's for that matter) and have the ability to power an Amiga 500/600/1200. He designed a custom PSU that can do all of that for me. That was nearly three years ago and it is my daily driver. It is safe, reliable, and didn't cost me an arm and a leg for what I requested. And it saves me a WHOLE lot of space!

 

Initially I had him build a PSU without the Amiga support and after a few weeks I wanted the Amiga addition. He took the PSU he built for me previously back in and swapped it for the upgraded model I have now. He did not have to do that but this is the kind of honest and great guy he is.

 

I cannot recommend Ray enough.

With Ray producing many, different Commodore/Amiga power supplies, it's hard to keep up with what's available and what's the pricing for them.  You can easily and clearly find them at

An alternative if the front-end of the site is making you look around too long,
