Thanks for writing and translating, but what is the different between this article and the article Power Supply Connector? It is important to look in categories for a similar article, before you make unnecessary work. --Jodigi 03:01, 6 August 2010 (CEST)

This is the wrong title for this article. The power supply (unit) is the name for the hardware which is plugged into the socket (German "Netzteil"). The article Power Supply Connector once had the title "Power Supply" and was moved to Power Supply Connector. --Camailleon 09:37, 6 August 2010 (CEST)
I linked the right article "Netzbuchse" in the German wiki to the article "Power Supply Connector" - this was probably the main mistake which led to this double article. I will now copy the German text from "Netzteil" into this article - please feel free to translate it, so we do not need to delete this article. --Camailleon 10:02, 8 August 2010 (CEST)

PSU voltages table[edit source]

It isn't clear if the voltages shown are with or without a load in the PSU voltage section/table.
If I remember, without a load* the voltage of a (non-switching) PSU usually goes up a little.
*(a dummy load like 10Ω,5-10W (Pr=V/R*V -> Pr=6V/10Ω*6V=3.6W, €PSU out 5V@1.5A -> 7.5W) or a brave C64)

PS Added the "V" symbol @5.2-5.5V section.

Have a nice day! -- 12:45, 30 June 2018 (CEST) Nickh ²+!

Power supply explanation[edit source]

Why is there a general explanation about power supplies? It seems like this should be very specific to the c64 and peripheral power supplies. There are already many good explanations on the web.

It would be nice to have a listing of c64 external and internal power supplies, 1541 internal power supplies. Also, it would be nice to have circuit schematics, troubleshooting.
