ColecoPlug (Colecovision USB power supply) can be preordered!

Recommended Posts

Oops, turns out my current cable is USB A->C. Anyway, it's not USB-PD aware and will not transfer more than standard USB current. Apparently if you get a straight USB C->C cable, you should be okay. But be careful when buying a USB A variant.

I was told I can use USB A -> USB C with iPad charger ?

 

That I don’t need USB C PSU.

With a good cord, yes. iPad chargers are good for 2A +. If your cord says it supports fast charging, it should work. But if you bought it from the bargain bin at the gas station, you may have unsatisfactory results.

Even good USB-C-Cables can't always do rapid-charge - as that's a special feature that needs some extra traces (it works with 12V). :)

 

No need to get a quickcharge-cable.

 

BTW: Packaging has arrived.

Now I'm only waiting for the instructions manual as well as the PCBs. Both should arrive within the next few days :)

Neat looking professional box. I hope this ColecoVision power supply is a success once it is released.

Unless you grab some really really cheap one that doesn't work at all, yes.

Quick update:

PCBs are finished and will ship to me on Monday.

So they should arrive on Tuesday and if they work without issues, assembly and shipping to you will start next week.

USB-A is the normal sized USB you know from your PC, USB-C the newest one used in Smartphones.

So a USB-A to USB-C is simply a cable from the big USB port to the smaller one.
