    Default Subor sb-2000 famiclone replacement power supply needed

    I have a Subor sb-2000 famiclone here. It has the original 220 9v psu here included with it, but I need a suitable North American replacement. The polarity is not listed on the system or the psu, so figured I would post and see if anyone here has had one prior and knew what it was.

    A Sega Genesis model 1 or Sega Master System 1 Ac adapter will do the job perfectly.

    May I ask where did you get it?.

    any 9v DC power supply with a negative center pin polarity will work. Unfortunately this is an uncommon type in North America. Most of the ones you'll find are 9v DC with a positive center pin polarity. Less likely to spark if there's a malfunction.

    Uncommon? Does RadioShack still have adapt-a-pin power supplies?
    You just buy that and a tip, and it can change between positive/negative by how the tip is inserted?

    You just don't want to use one of those cheap universal ac adapters usually rate at 300mA, they don't have a lot of juice and they will introduce noise in their output.
    For a Famiclone I'd say 9V with at least 850mA.

    Been using two such adapters, for my official AV Famicom (a 1200mA-rated one, I think it is, because the system is rated 850) and a 800mA I think for my FDS (which needs 400, I recall).

    Default Working on 100v

    Hi, just to confirm that mine subor is working on 100v with the oem adapter they supllied with. Polarity doesn't matter as these are not one big and one small flat pins.
