7800 AC Adapter question

Recommended Posts

I have a dead Atari 7800 ac adapter, and I was wondering if it is safe to cut the connector odd and splice it onto a functional AC adapter that uses the same voltage and amps as the original. I have drawers full of various adapters, but I haven't seen the one from the 7800 used in anything else. I'd expect that out of Apple or Nintendo but Atari??? Thanks much

I use a various amount of different PSU's for my 7800's.

 

9V and over 1.5 Amp is a good rule of the thumb.

 

Some have the splice for the adaptor and others directly soldered to the board.

 

Unlike the A8 computers it's just V+ and 0v and not multiple rails.
