Where can i find an ac adapter to that will run my 2600?

Recommended Posts

I know this question is lame but i'm finding it difficult to get hold of an ac adapter to run my 2600. What adapter did they come with & how can i get hold of one? Ps; I bought the console on Portabello rd, London for 50 squidlies & came without adapter if curious.

Apreciate your help! :D

I think Radio Shack still sells them, but you might be better off looking around the net. I have seen people selling them on ebay all the time.

You'll probably have to get a univeral adaptor... nothing else uses the 8mm headphone-style jack anymore. If worst comes to worst, you could probably attach a 9 volt battery to some headphones..... :P

Find this. If you can't, then find a universal that can accomodate:

 

Rating: 9VDC, 500mA

Plug type: 1/8" phone

Polarity Tip: Positive

I sell NOS (New Old Stock) Atari brand power supplies for the Atari 2600. They operate off 120VAC/60HZ Input, which is standard here in the USA, but I imagine it is different for you in London.

 

I sell they for only $6.25 each. Here is the link to them on my online shopping cart - http://juniescreations.netfirms.com/cgi-bi...ir/Update_Parts.

 

If the input is different and will not work like I think, there is another option. The website Best Electronics sells a German/Europe version Atari 2600 power supply for $12. Here is the details -- "Atari German 2600 Power supply CA017087 $12.00

 

Here is the link to Best Electronics website - http://www.best-electronics-ca.com
