As many of you already know, I finally got the chance recently to jump into the Genesis pool. And I purchased a S-video modded Genesis 1 (V6) with the Sega CD 1 and Power Base Convertor (I wish I could get the smaller version but it seems they virtually don't exist). Unfortunately, the guy only had one real AC Adapter (1602-1) and had to send me a 3rd party one.
Obviously I'm using the real AC Adapter for the Genesis. I'd love to go ahead and try out and test my Sega CD 1 (you guys know how hard those front loaders are to come by so I certainly don't want to fry it!!), but I'm concerned about if I should trust the 3rd party AC Adapter. Furthermore, it's one of those "adjustable" ones--should I put in on 9V or 12V?
And yes, I do want to get another real 1602-1 AC Adapter, but is the 3rd party one safe to use in the meantime?
