Hi guys,

I was in Tesco this morning and purely by chance I stumbled across a multi voltage PSU for just under a tenner. It delivers 1.2A @ 3v and powers my F200 beautifly.

I thought I'd let others know in case you were struggling to find a suitable PSU. I found mine in the isle with all the light bulbs, torches, multi mains adaptors etc.

Cheers

CR :)

Just a warning:
The only problem with multi-voltage units is if you switch voltage or reverse polarity and then accidentally fry your unit. If users are careful this won't happen, but I've read a disturbingly large number of reports of these kinds of accidents happening.

Yeah just make sure you use the correct vcoltage and polarity settings.

:excl: Make sure that it is set to 3V negative polarity (-) for the GP2X and 5V positive polarity (+) for the cradle. Otherwise you'll fry it! Expensive mistake! :excl:
