3.3v and 1A dc. Center negative.
Dangit, they have to be complicated, don't they.

I have a converter that has 3.0 and 4.5, but not 3.3, ergh.

It'll accept 3V as long as it's regulated. I've even run mine on 1.9V succesfully. 1.8V and lower crashes the device though. (my psu has a 0.1V stepping between 0V and 30V).

What sort of current range is the 2x drawing at the lower voltages?
1A at 3v was quite a shocker for me! (OK that over spec'ed, I believe, isn't it?)

You also mentioned the 2x could be fed though the EXT port but wasn't recommended, any details on that? :)

I wouldn't go any higher than 4V.

when idling (ie, in the menu. pre-1.4 firmware)

@ 2.5V = 410mA. = 1.025 watts/hr
@ 2.9V = 340mA. = .986
@ 3.3V = 300mA. = .990
@ 3.4V = 290mA. = .986
@ 3.6V = 280mA. = 1.008
@ 3.7V = 270mA. = .999
@ 3.8V = 260mA. = .988
@ 4.0V = 260mA. = 1.040

running mplayer:

2.5V - upto 850mA = 2.125
2.9V - upto 690mA = 2.001
3.1V - upto 650mA = 2.015
3.3V - upto 590mA = 1.947
3.7V - upto 530mA = 1.961

It can obviously draw more than this in various circumstances, so you should always buy a PSU can provide 1A or more.
