    Question DC Power Supply for XBox or PS2

    Does anyone know if their are 12v DC power supplys available for an XBOX, PS2, PSONE, or N64 or something or do you have to use an inverter?

    thanks

    I know the PS one (the redesigned original PSX) has a cigarette lighter adapter... My guess is that the XBOX has a regular PC power supply inside(most of it is pc parts), so you could probably crack it open and use a DC-DC power supply.

    hmm......

    i would like to just buy a cheap psone since it is so small, cheap, and compact and use it in the car. I can just cut the cigarette lighter adapter and wire it to my battery, right? Thanks

    any other info on this subject would be A+++

    I'm not an electrician but that sounds about right - second opinion here please. You need to make sure you can tell the negative wire from the positive, or else wire one of these to your battery.

    That would work, but make sure you get the polarity right and use a fuse!

    edit: U can use a multimeter to check the polarity.

    There is a company that produce a DC converter for the PS2 that replaces the PS2 AC/DC PSU. Can't remember the name, but I did post something about it in the last couple of months.

    IVe got one of them...

    But it's caused me loads of noise and interferance in the audio and video lines... that i wouldnt recomend them !!!

    also im on my second one ! cos the first one went up in smoke ! with the PS2 in standby mode ! and not even on !

    I though the second one would be better..... because the first one was faulty.. but it's NOT !

    well i have an XBOX and dont want to move it to the car, I have a nintendo64 I have hiding in my closet I would love to use (would i need an inverter?) but I wouldnt mind buying an inexpensive PSONE if they already make a DC adapter for it (plus its so small) but if anyone finds an alternative to an inverter for the N64 please let me know. thanks

    does the n64 have a wall wart?

    if it does, try finding a 12volt adapter with the same specs at rat shack
