Good evening Gentlemen, I was recently lucky enough to get a working VIC-1001 from Japan with the katakana keyboard and ROM. There was no PSU supplied so I naturally I assumed that I could use one of the 2-pin Vic-20 PSU's from my stores, but it seems the VIC-1001 had a different connector. As far as I can measure, the usual European (and maybe elsewhere) VIC-20 2 pin connector has dimensions of 17mm x 11mm with a pin spacing of 10 mm and a pin diameter of about 2.5mm, with a 2mm divider down the centre of the plug. The connector on my 1001 is approx 16mm x 9mm with a pin spacing of 7mm, diameter 1.5mm with no divider. Can anyone confirm this or do I have an anomoly? Any idea what this connector might be popularly known as? Rob edit: In a moment of inspiration I dug out my old electric shaver and the power connector on that seems to fit.
