Hey guys,
I recently got an Atari 130XE. Works great. However, it has an ingot power supply. I have seen on some other auctions people have removed the connector from the ingot and attached it to a tiny cell phone power pack.

Is this advisable?
What voltage/amp rating should one use if attempting this hack?

Thanks for the info!

(Stole this from the Atari 8 bit FAQ). 

Safest thing is to find a pin out diagram and measure it yourself on your current power adapter.

PS - Real non-ingot power adapters are available on ebay for about $15 shipped.

or better still, snip the din end of the cable and connect it up to a +5v modern adaptor plug
