why not just play genesis/mastersystem/game gear/megadrive on an emulator?
So, I've been searching around today and found that sega genesis power adapters are 120v in and 9-10v output.
How do I find out what the maximum voltage is that the sega can handle? I was thinking about hardwiring it direclty to my car. My car gets a peak of 14v while on, but mostly stays at 13v. How do I know if this is too much voltage?
I also found a car adapter for a game gear, rated at the same voltage but the current rating is different. The game gear adapter says 800ma while the regular sega pulls 1.2amp. So I don't think I can use it. Someone help me here.
Because I have the sega just sitting here. Don't want to build a carputer for the car it's going in.
Voltage needs to be the same, amperage needs to be at a minimum of 1.2A if that is what it says on the regulator. You can use a 10v 400A regulator if you want, you will just waste a lot of power.
Power it like you would a laptop or a shuttle PC.

Any idea where I can get a regulator?
You could use a second car adapter for the Game Gear and wire them parallel to each other.
get a cheap inverter, simple and easy.
At present I am running an xBox off an inverter, but intend using a DC-Dc supply once I can get a second xBox to hack up and test.
I also have a Sega Megadrive (Genesis) which I have contemplated sticking in the car but have so far decided against.
Do they make "cheap" inverters?
