Post PC Engine Duo-R Power Adapter
I'm going to be getting a PC Engine Duo-R for Christmas, and I'd like some extra verification with something...

I don't want to use a Japanese power supply, so would a Genesis Model 2 power adapter work fine? I've heard this from a few other forums, but I just want some more closure with this. Thanks.

I don't have a duo r, only duo, pce, ifu 30 and sgfx.

The Genesis 2 adapter won't physically fit my duo, but based on what you've read it should fit a duo r. Specs are close enough, but the Genesis 2 has a little less punch than the regular duo one, again of it works or is not an issue. Polarity matches as well.

Why don't you want to use the Japanese power supply? With a common regulator you should have no problems at all.

I don't want to use it because...

A) My friend told me that you can fry your console if you use a Japanese power supply in the US for too long without a converter.

B) The Japanese power supply included is not original.
