williamc Posted December 20, 2022 Share Posted December 20, 2022 I recently picked up a Nintendo Popeye tabletop. I actually got one as a birthday gift in the mid 1980s. They are expensive nowadays, but I had a lot of fun with mine back then and had been wanting to get one again, and finally found one at a not too crazy price. It runs on two C batteries and doesn't have a power jack. I don't need C batteries for anything else and don't want to buy them just for this, so I've been looking for replacement options. I've found a few things online but they seem kind of cheaply made, not sure if these are really safe to use on vintage electronics like this. https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Eliminator-Flameless-Decorative-Electronic/dp/B0829466Y3/ref=sr_1_2?crid=WYO1NMR7RMKY https://www.amazon.com/S-YUWEN-Eliminator-Electronic-Replacement-Batteries/dp/B08TLZ69VN/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2WYOW7KM5ACH3 I know about the old Coleco Perma Power battery eliminators too, but I think those are only good if you're replacing four C's, not just two. At least, that's what it looks like to me, I've never actually owned one. I've also seen adapter spacers like these that use AA batteries inside of a C-shaped shell. I have plenty of rechargeable AA's already so this would be a good solution if they work. But from what I've heard they aren't super reliable. Anyone have any recommendations for good battery eliminators? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
