    Default Sega Nomad

    Found one the other day for 25.00 with the wall power supply and no battery. Screen was in great shape what do you thing? Worth the price?

    Worth the price both if you want it for yourself OR to flip. They tend to go for $50+.

    Yeah, looks pretty good to me. I wouldn't worry about not having the battery pack since it has the power supply.

    Had the same thoughts honestly. Besides my boss is a super brain he can rig up a battery for it that would be better than the ones that came with it back in the day.

    The battery pack was a specially moulded case designed to fit on the back and just held 6 AA's. It would be a bit hard to make a replacement. It wouldn't be too hard to make somethign that plugs into the powerjack port though. Or you could order the Li-Ion mod that jonjandran was offering on here not long ago.

    Well that's honestly the first time ive heard of it being cheap most of the time. Everyone I've ever seen runs from 50-80 but it is ebay and you can get really good deals on there. I just won a sealed copy of battle bull for the original gameboy for like 20.00 last night.

    Its funny u should bring up the battery pack jb143 I went into game over in austin today and they had spares for the nomad and were selling them for 10.00 so Id say all in all i've spent around 35.00 and got a really good working order thats a damn good deal i think

    Now I am interested in this li-ION battery pack for the nomad that would be amazing.

    If you wait long enough and check regularly, you can get good deals on almost anything on ebay. When I was looking, I think they averaged $50 or so. I ended up finding one in a lot of random gaming stuff off craigslist. I paid $30 for the box of stuff.

    Congrats on that clone that's a pretty sweet lot all in all. I really need to get my hands on one of those LI Ion packs for it.
