I wanted to find a Universal AC Adapter for PC110.
I found out from the earlier postings about IBM AC Adapter:
[P/N: 07H0629] [FRU P/N: 75H7522] part of [CD Kit P/N: 03L3300].
See appended postings for details. Is this really the best?

It looks like this is difficult to find in Europe.
How about in USA? I think I can find this in Japan.
If there is interest I can ship it with the order from T-Zone.

What kind of AC Adapter are most people using now with PC110?
An adapter that supports only local voltage?
In North America, can you use the original PC110 AC Adapter intended for
Japanese 100V standard?

Could somebody who already has this adapter describe it. Is it the brick type?
Is the AC cord detachable so that it could be replaced with the local standard?
What kind of AC plug does it come with? Two pronged ungrounded, or three pronged grounded?
With flat or round prongs?

Hi All

I also bought this adapter from IBM UK. It has a different Part Number here
and cost 55UKP(expensive)

I don't seem to be having the same problems, I use a Cherry Mini Keyboard
Ref 4100 and the new smaller Microsoft Wheel mouse and an NEC 1810 18" TFT
Monitor(Black so it matches the PC110 ;-)).

If you are in the US it maybe the 110v local supply or maybe its your
docking station?

Ok, after several questions I'll try to elaborate on the power supply.
It belongs to an external 20 speed external pcmcia cd rom. The ordering
number for this cd-kit is 03L3300.
It seems that the number to use for the power supply is the FRU (Field
Replacement Unit) 75H7522. The whole cd kit is priced #424 + VAT. And
the Power supply costs #48 +VAT. In the UK You'd call IBM part sales on
0181-5753333 for these parts. Now the bad news. There is no stock and no
lead time on either part. That doesn't mean you can't get it but it will
take some time, so the best thing is to call in and place an order and
hopefully Big Blue will get moving....

For all of you asking about proper power supplies....
There is a PSU for an IBM external cd-rom that outputs 10V 1A. Its IBM
Part number is:07H0629. It is a pretty small thing an itworks
beautifully out of the box on the 110 and you even get the IBM logo on
it :-)
