Hi Guys.

First post here (had made a couple of posts in the old Yahoo GRiD group).

This is a powerpack from a GRiD 1550sx. It has a rather unique socket on it (there should be a photo attached if I've done this right), which also allowed you to use this as an external powerpack, by using a special fly-lead.

Is there a particular name for this socket and can you get plugs, or leads, for this anywhere?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like a 3 pin Mini-DIN power connector:

EUREKA!!!!!

Now I need to find, or make, an adapter lead. With a Din plug on one end and a standard 5mm DC power plug on the end.
