    I recently purchased an AV famicom from ebay, and I was wondering how I would power it up when it gets here.
    When I searched online, I read that the genesis 1 power adapter works fine. So I was wondering if the universal power adapter would work as well?
    also, would the toploader NES power adapter work too? since they're basically the same system and all...

    If the NES supply is DC, it should work fine.

    the AV famicom requires DC power, while the NES power supply outputs AC power, so I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be doing that

    I don't know if I trust the china power brick you linked, but as long as the polarity is right and it puts out enough current between 7 and 25 volts, you'll probably be okay.

    Anything that puts out 9v at around 1000mah ought to do the trick quite well. Just make sure you have the right plug on it when you're done with everything.

    I found a couple of genesis 1 power adapters with the model number 1602, most of which have a -1, -2, and -3 next to that model number
    does it matter which one I get?
