N64 power adapter


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Just bought a used NTSC/J N64 off eBay Japan.

The power adapter that comes with the N64 is a 110V input.

 

I'm living in Singapore and here we use a 220V output.

Currently i'm powering up the N64 using a 220V to 110V step down voltage converter like http://www.keepphoto.com/productmedia/ES101/ES101_show.jpg.

 

I'm wondering if i can buy like this https://www.gamesmen.com.au/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/i/m/img1-33742.jpg

 

Will this be a plug and play or will I fry my N64 montherboard ???
Thank you for all replies.

It is an adapter..... most important thing is the output from the adapter.

 

So if a 110V adapter gives 5V for example on a 110V wall socket, the 230V adapter will also give 5V on a 230V wall socket.

 

Looking at the pic this adapter can handle both 110V and 230V so you should be safe ;)

keep in mind that imitation multiranged adapters can be noisy (introducing lines and hum on ancient composite) sometimes...

or use old AT/ATX or make your own supply

Molex type connector, as seen from AC adapter:

1 3 5

2 4 6

Molex type connector, as seen from Console:

5 3 1

6 4 2

pins 1/2/4 Ground

pins 3/5 +3.3V 2.7A

pin 6 +12V 0.8A

I have no clue if the originals are even multiranged, despite their labeling - I guess no one really tried a 220-240V EU adapter in a 100-120V socket or visaversa...

Thanks for confirming the nightmare to avoid... Edited by euss
official are thus single ranged : 100-120V / 220-240V , not multi or wide ranged
