Sent: Sunday, December 19, 2004 14:10:13 From: Mike (firstname.lastname@example.org) First let me say GREAT SITE! I did all the digging on the ETX-70at for powering it, and I am still a bit nervous about sending it 12v (My warranty is nervous too!) So I decided to look for a suitable 9v solution. My search was not long at the local Radio Shack. Part No Description Price 273-1805 6/9v Regulated Auto Adaptor $3.97 273-1745 9v Snap Adaptaplug accessory Free!! (You get one adaptaplug free with purchase of an adaptaplug cord) As I already had a Coleman jump starter that has 2 12v power ports at 10ah, and a light on top!! (gotta figure out how to make it red!) HarborFreight has it for $29.99 http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=47143 So, for under $35, I have a power supply for both my scopes (I have a ds-2130 that will work straight off 12v) and it should run in the hundreds of hours before running low. Thanks again, Mike Stafford, VA
