    Default Replacements for Turbo Duo AC adapter?

    I'm wondering if anyone knows the options for a replacement AC adapter for a Turbo Duo console? It uses a 10V input, but with a non-standard plug type. The internal prong inside the Turbo Duo's receptacle is too wide for any of the adapter plugs that I have (I don't want to alter the Turbo Duo console and I found the console loose without hook-ups)

    well, i can tell you what turbo zone direct suggests

    "Go to Radio Shack and ask for part #273-1771, then ask for a "Q" tip (don't let them charge you another $4.99, a tip is included. It better be for $20.00.)

    The tip must be center positive when you plug it into the adapter. Don't worry this will all be clear once you see the part. It's 9V, 1500mA but no one makes a 10V, 1000mA, it was proprietary to NEC. Your Duo will only draw as much amperage as it needs, so that number is OK. 9V has tested well enough, but TZD assumes no liability (natch.)"
