This baby came with a telescope. Yes, the power cord is soldered on the pack. I tested it with an LCD monitor with the right sized plug for it and it powered on. All that's needed is to solder a right sized male plug in place of the current thing I got and find a way to attach it to the back of a Nomad (besides duct tape). This actually worked fine when I had no power supply for my Genesis Model 2: I soldered the right sized plug to the right voltage box, and I was playing Streets of Rage and X-Men 2 again.
