In this episode we explore various Atari 8-bit power supplies including both 9-Volt AC and 5-Volt DC units and how to test your power supply. We also tear into and reveal the innards of the dreaded "Ingot" and discuss why you should never, ever, use it. (Spoiler Alert: it will fry your computer.)
This time we are going to take a look at a Power Supply Tester from Keelog that works with the Atari 8-bit 5v DC Power Supplies. A Power Supply Tester can properly evaluate the health of your Power Supply by measuring its performance when it's put under load. Also, we will look into how an Atari Power Supply might seem healthy when tested with a Multimeter, but it may not be.
