    It won't burn out with a gen1 ac. Like most systems at its time, the SMS2 has internal voltage regulators that convert the voltage down to what it needs.

    That's true. I've been using a 12v adapter on my NES for a long time now, without any hassle, for example. AFAIK, the Master System can do so as well.
