NES/SNES/N64/PS1/Genesis Power chords
 
Where would be the cheapest route to find them? I looked on ebay, there are a lot of third party ones for 7$ each, but I cant seem to find any cheaper than that.

Any help would be appreciated :)

haha, no I have a lot of consoles missing power chords, so I need somewhere I can get a bunch at a relatively cheap price.

I have maybe 7 NES consoles missing power chords.


I have a bad addiction to vintage games... I have maybe 5000 vintage games in my collection and 70 consoles give or take

they do have different heads, and different wattage

ie: SNES NES Sega Genesis AC Power Adapter Cable Cord New on eBay.ca (item 280641593187 end time 11-Mar-11 22:17:14 EST)

edit: but I have some appliances that use the same head, but different wattage. ie: power screwdriver

right then i guess youre best bet is to contact the places selling them and ask for a douzen discount or such.

i did that. Best they can do is combine shipping, which makes it still really expensive since I cant find any CDN sellers :(

Oh, power CORDS I thought this was gonna be some software that allows you to make bit music from all those old consoles. (Power Chord) lol You could try hitting up some pawn shops or vintage gaming stores. I know we have PnP Games in Winnipeg.

The PS1 uses a cord like some other AV hardware and a bunch of other things. That will be the easiest to find. Drop by some second hand shop and they probably have one in a mess of cables.

I go to the 4 pawn shops local to me, and they have consoles and games, but no extra cords lying around :(
