I'm thinking of getting a new power supply for my Game Gear. Does it have to be Sega? Of course they'd say so on the back on the console...
But I was wondering what others use for the Game Gear? As mine doesn't have a power supply.

Good old Mk-2103. Easy to find.

Yep, I buy Sega power supplies whenever I see them. I power my Neo Geo with a 1602, the same supply used for the Master System 1, Sega CD, and Genesis 1. What I need to do is get a surge protector built for multiple wall warts. Shame that more companies didn't use inline power supplies. There was really no reason not to, aside from shaving a couple pennies off of the cost of the wiring.

There might be exceptions but as a general rule Game Gear uses center positive in USA and Brazil, etc.
Center negative elsewhere like Europe and Japan, etc.

Just fyi, there is nothing special about these Sega supplies. They are all Class 1 power supplies with a transformer, 4x diodes and one capacitor. Most don't have fuses and none have current protection or load regulation. They do the job just fine, but if you see a new Class 2 power supply that fits, it will be lighter weight, give you less voltage ripple, have more protections, and probably work better overall.
