Keelog Power SuppliesCommodore 64 PSU - A fresh start:

Commodore 64 and 128 systems have sold in over 20 million units worldwide, and the Amiga 500 series has sold in over 7 million units worldwide, which are impressive numbers even by today's standards. However, unlike modern computers, tablets, and smartphones, a considerable number of Commodore and Amiga 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 Commodore 64/128 and Amiga 500 systems is the power supply. This is specifically why we have designed a replacement C64, C128, and A500 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 C64, C128, and Amiga PSU was designed from scratch as a high-quality replacement for the original power supply. The Commodore version contains a +5V/2.0A DC (C64) or +5V/3.0A DC (C128) switching power module with an anti-ripple filter, along with a true transformer-based 9V/1.1A AC module. The Amiga version contains +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.

Classic vs. Modern chassis:The C64 and C128 power supplies are available in two shapes. The first is called Classic and with a size of 86 mm x 70 mm x 48 mm (3.4" x 2.8" x 1.9") resembles the original power supply keylogger series. The second is called Modern, and resembles a modern power supply with a slicker shape of 125 mm x 59 mm x 42 mm (5.0" x 2.3" x 1.6"). Both variants however are a lot lighter and more compact than the original Commodore power supplies. Additionally, both the Modern and Classic chassis are available in colors black and gray.

Commodore 128 PSU - Classic vs. Modern chassisCommodore 128 PSU - What else is out there?What else is out there?The original Commodore 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. The vast majority of these power supplies is recognizable by the general purpose Maszczyk Z16 chassis. Opening up one of those power supplies was big motivation for us to design our C64, C128 and Amiga power supply series.

Safety first:Our C64 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 Commodore 64 computer. It's intended for indoor usage only, the maximum rated current should not be exceeded, and proper ventilation should be ensured.
