What It Does
The original power supply although quite reliable, it does generate huge amounts of heat and in some cases can warp the laser (especially on the first generation models) and also in extreme cases, can warp the console housing / shell.
Our new power supply was designed so it uses less power, runs much cooler and safer compared to mains voltage.
The new power supply is a simple DIY installation that takes 10 minutes and is compatible with ALL fat models.
It is also compatible with all the newly designed mods such as the PS1Digital, xStation, MODE and MemCard Pro.
You also need to purchase a 12v 3a DC adapter, center positive, 5.5x2.5mm barrel size which can be purchased on eBay or Amazon.
Please take care when replacing as the original unit runs on mains supply.
Beginner level knowledge required, this requires safely removing the old power supply and re-fitting new power supply.
We take NO responsibility for failed installs which renders the console in-operable, we do however offer an installation service.
* Optional Console Fan Pin Header (30x30x10mm - 5V - 3 Pin)
Particularly with a MODE with HDD installed, it get's quite warm inside the console, so we offer a version with a Fan & Mount to ensure good air circulation within the console to keep it cool.
* Correct Reset Logic Needed For Proper Operation
To ensure the console is in correct operation, special reset logic was present on the Original PSU so it was also needed on the PS1PicoPSU. This will ensure correct operation of the console.
* Fused Auto-Resetting Input Protection
If something shorts out within the Console / Power Brick / PicoPSU, the fuse will blow to stop more damage from happening.
* Reverse Polarity Protection
If you accidently use the wrong external power brick, it won't damage the PicoPSU or Console.
* High Grade Polymer Capacitors
We have spent a great deal of money by using high grade KEMET polymer capacitors to ensure the lowest output ripple, highest reliability and highest possible capacitor life.
* Fits ALL Models
The PS1PicoPSU has both 5 pin and 7 pin connectors to suite all models of the Original Fat PS1 Console.
