The power supply emits a high pitched hum, which seems to happen when the Amiga is transferring data through the serial cable. Probably an easy fix.

Yes, the Amiga serial port that you can plug a null modem cable into to transfer files from a PC using "Amiga Explorer".

The power supply is just like the picture linked to in the first post :)

no...the question was,is it heavy or light, internally they are different and one is alot heavier and will effect shipping.

the light version looks identical to the heavy version from above...just take a picture of the rear of the supply with whats written on it in view,thats the most important info needed.

anyway,i cant see electrically how using the serial port would effect the power supply,maybe it hums after its been on a while?

I don't have another to compare the weight to but it seems light. I have updated the first post with photos of the device.
