    I think the way I did the modification would be as legal as it could get as I have not broken the safety barrier of the 12V DC adapter used for the PicoPSU. Only thing I can see about it that I have connected the earth between the adapter and the 230V plug, which is not allowed unless authorized.

    Safety certifications relates to the high voltage side, so if you mod an ATX PSU by just cutting the wires and not opening it, I can't see how that should be a problem.

    A600 #1 : 080 V2 : 128MB fast : 2MB chip : Indivision ECS : 32GB CF : RR USB
    : Ethernet | A600 #2 : 010 : 2MB chip
    A500 : 68000 42MHz : 1MB chip : 8MB fast : 4GB CF | A500+ : 080 V2+ : 128MB fast : 2MB chip : 32GB CF

    I think you are correct, but there might be regional regulations. The 100% certain way would be to make an adapter so no wires are being cut on the certified device. Of course, all of my knowledge on this subject has come from discussions on the Lemon64 site so I might not have the whole picture.

    I'd trust anything you built Keith!
