So what makes a good power source?
TT030 with Storm with 256 Mb Ram, Thunder with a CF drive and Lightning, HxC floppy emulator and one of Codekiller's magical Mono/Colour switchers, 1040 STE, upgraded to 4 MB and fitted with switchable dual TOS, also 3 STS one has TOS1.0 AND 2.06 switchable with an HD drive, the other two are untested as yet, just bought for spares!!

A power source is good when it avoids, via active control, drop-voltage and overvoltage; providing a very stable output voltage,
with little or no importance regarding dynamic load.

So would i be best off buying a mains to USB power supply as i have a few things needing usb power?

Generally, users start powering from a PC USB port; and when they check that the unit operates well, they usually start to test all suitable 5 volts power source they have :)


There are users feedback in this thread, that show suitable ones.

Hi again, my Aatari is a Mega ST 2 by the way, I suppose I would need the 90 degree connector therefore, right?

Quick question (and sorry if this was already asked/answered)... Can you
use this with machines that have the internal ACSI port? In other words,
Mega STe's and STacy's? Thanks.

There is an user that place one of these inside a Stacy;
obviously, you need to solder wires from the DB19 connector;
but it appears to work ok!

Some photos would be good...

Okay, that's good to know, I'm curious though, as to why you would
have to solder wires from the DB19 connector. AFAIK, the internal
ASCI connector on the STacy and Mega STe are identical. For example,
you can use an Ultrasatan externally or internally with these machines.

Thanks.

PS I'm using an internal Ultrasatan with both my STacy and Mega STe.
I am using an adapter in-between. One was from Alan H. (think MonSTer
board) and the other was from Lotharek. Can I assume that these boards
take care of the "soldering wires" part you mentioned?

Yes.

Also, if you can provide information regarding these adaptors...
these can be interesting for STacy and Mega STe users,

Sure thing. Unfortunately, as far as I know, Alan doesn't sell the Internal Mega STe/STacy
adapter of his anymore... (at least, I can't find it on his store anymore) :(

However, Lotharek does still sell his version. In fact, it's what I'm using with an internal
US with my Mega STe:

https://www.lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=181

Make sure and read the text - for example, without a small modification, using this will
disable the external ACSI port.

HTH's.
