scottinNH Posted December 17, 2022 Share Posted December 17, 2022 (edited) Has anyone run an ST off a generic 5V power brick, or a USB supply? Per Exxos and other pages the ST only requires 5V to operate (although without 12v the serial ports will not work, which is fine for now). So I am surprised nobody has made such cables to sell. (EDIT: This is an NTSC "520ST", NOT an "STfm". No internal floppy, no SCART. ) So why do I want to do this? too much clutter... I'd like to run the 3-4 systems I have off a common 5V power supply (maybe not all at once, mind you). For example the XL/XE series already have USB power cables. I'm not interested in rebuilding the original ST PS (which isn't giving problems, but is old) I'm not talking little 5V phone chargers, I know all about how they don't sustain current or may get hot. I have a number of large 5V supplies that are 3A up to 10A. thanks! Edited December 18, 2022 by scottinNH Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
