Bought a C128, now i need a power supply. I've seen on the net that my Amiga 500 pps won't work. I'd build one but I don't have the connector either. So, does anyone have a working or non-working C128 power supply they'd like to donate or sell? I would pay shipping of course.

Thanks,
Kipp

Good point you checked before assuming the C128 and Amiga 500 would be compatible. Although they share the connector, it is supposedly lethal to plug in an Amiga PSU (5V DC, 12V DC) to a C128 which expects 5V DC and 9V AC. If you come across a broken Amiga power supply, you could reuse the connector using a different power source for the 5V and 9V. Those are the same voltages as a C64 has but the C128 draws more power and thus requires a bit beefier supply.
