Found an Atari 7800in an old box

Post by niggannivea »

So I found this Atari with 2 controllers, a few games but couldn’t find the power cable. The only one a found on the internet was an original at 25$ do you know if a cheaper option exists and if it’s reliable ? Thanks !

The original power supply of the ATARI 7800 are expensive, they have a pretty strange connector, although the voltage is identical to 2600, you can use it. You can use crocodile head wires to bypass the two power points to a 9v / 1a transformer. Try it, it's easy :)
