A fresh start

ZX Spectrum +2A, +2B, +3 systems have sold in over 5 million units worldwide, an impressive number even by today's standards. However, unlike modern computers, tablets, and smartphones, a considerable number of ZX Spectrum systems are still operational over 30 years after being introduced to the public. In proper hands they have a chance of surviving another 30 years. Yet a common failure among ZX Spectrum systems is the power supply. This is specifically why we have designed a replacement ZX Spectrum PSU. This series of power supplies gives your system a fresh start, minimizing the risk of damage due to an ageing factory power supply.

Robust and reliable design

The ZX Spectrum PSU was designed from scratch as a high-quality replacement for the original ZX Spectrum power supply. It contains internal +5V/4.0A, +12V/2.0A, and -12V/0.5A DC switching power modules. The power supply has a sturdy custom-made chassis with an elegant LED-illuminated logo.

Modern style chassis

The ZX Spectrum power supply has a chassis design called Modern (as opposed to our C64 Classic series), and resembles a modern power supply with a slick shape of 125 mm x 59 mm x 42 mm (5.0" x 2.3" x 1.6"). It's a lot lighter and more compact than the original ZX Spectrum power supplies. The ZX Spectrum PSU chassis are available in colors black and gray.

Black vs. Gray chassis

All our power supplies are available in black and light gray. The performance between both types doesn't differ, it's a matter of taste. The LED and OLED displays (depending on the version) are generally black with white illumination, being more pronounced on the gray edition and giving an interesting color combination. On the other hand the LED/OLED display blends in the black version better, being barely visible when not powered. If at the point of purchase you are uncertain about the item version in the cart, please drop us a message with the desired chassis style, color, plug type and voltage (US/EU/UK/AU).

What else is out there?

The original ZX Spectrum power supplies are very hard to get by these days, and often pose a reliability or even safety threat. As for other replacement power supplies, a handful of solutions exist on the market. Yet most of them are DIY-grade, lacking basic quality, electric engineering expertise, and safety features.

ZX Spectrum PSU Modern Gray AU - Safety first

Safety first

Our ZX Spectrum PSU is designed to be safe for the user, and safe for the computer. It's protected from over-current and over-voltage, and fused on both the AC and DC sides. Nevertheless, it's mandatory to say that this is a 120/230V AC power device, which should not be opened, tampered with, or used for anything else than powering an unmodified ZX Spectrum computer. It's intended for indoor usage only, the maximum rated current should not be exceeded, and proper ventilation should be ensured. For reference, a picture of the opened power supply is shown below.
