They have a showroom in Sim Lim (egads!) and called them up. A compatible brick would cost me 19 bucks. I can just mozy along to their store to pick one up.


i was about to recommend them. i've used them for high capacity batts and spare power adapters on various occasions. cheap and not lousy quality... i think (no fire, etc)

Got my power brick. I also managed to snag some AAAA batteries which I've been meaning to search for.

The store really is meant for power supplies. I thought that it would be nice if I were building something and go there to shop for things to use in powering my doomsday devices or something.

Glad you got it sorted.
I would add that Belkin and Targus both make generic replacement power supplies, with a variety of connectors and output voltage selection etc. I picked one up locally when my power brick died, can't for the life of me remember where though :D
