Looking for an Amiga powerbrick.

Only stipulations are that it must work, and the power switch must be good, and not cracked / chipped. Oh... and it must be a uk one (220-240v)

Yellowing isn't an issue - it'll most probably be sprayed.

It will (most probably) have a new flex and plug, and I'll be cutting the Amiga power connector off (and recycling), so if these are damaged or broken no problem.

I'm just looking for cheap.

Well, after I broke my Spectrum +2a PSU, it was suggested by Zetro that the amiga psu could be easily adapted for use.

So, I'll be making to look reasonably authentic (black), bobbing a +2a power DIN on the end. I can then use various adapters to power my Amstrad and Ataris, and other 8 bitters.

I'd by far prefer to go this way than to haxxorise yet another PC ATX PSU.

Ok, Ta.

Now, supposing I was going to risk getting the lurgy by visiting the other bay, where there are many of these in various conditions... What should I be on the lookout for? e.g. Is a "Heavy" psu better than a not heavy one??? Are they all different wattage??? :shrug:
