Amiga PSU BOOST by Electroware: a fresh start for your accelerated Commodore Amiga system. Efficient and reliable, 50W strong (up to 8A at 5VDC rail) industrial grade PSU to power and preserve! The best and most affordable Amiga PSU replacement for accelerated systems created with cooperation of active Amiga users. Forget PCATX PSU messy mock-ups! The one and only absolute industry standard from Electroware. Beware of the clones!
GET THE NEW PSU AS YOUR AMIGA IS WORTH IT.
The Commodore Amiga computers were originally equipped with various PSU models. Heavyweight, lightweight, in range of 24W-35W output power. Some of them were transformer based when the other where switching mode (actually quite good) but now, all of these PSUs have same problem: are over 30 years old and not longer reliable.
Worldwide Amiga Users community is active & creative 😉 using of some additional gear is now a standard (HDDs, SD cards, WiFi PCMCIA, RAM&CPU extensions & accelerators). It’s all making the power consumption higher than ever expected for stock PSU, causing the overload, overheating and high ripple.
If your PSU is not enough or is not longer working – it’s time to get a solid replacement made of superior quality, reliable components complying the modern standards. It’s 50W of total combined output power, distributed mainly for 5VDC rail, making it 2-3 times stronger than original Commodore Amiga PSU and 2x smaller in dimensions & weight to save your desk’s space. Our new Amiga PSU BOOST is a modern, 50W strong replacement power supply unit for Commodore Amiga computer systems. Based on our famous Amiga DUO/DUO+ PSU experiences provides stable, filtered, adjustable 5VDC (up to 8.0A), 12VDC (up to 0.5A) and -12VDC (up to 0.15A) by industrial grade components. Now your Vampire, Blizzard, ACA or Furia accelerator will get enough juice to work flawlessly with full MHz clocks. Factory trimmed for stock Amiga 500 reference load, may be adjusted to give exact 5VDC with 2-3x heavier loads and compensate larger voltage drop on the output cable.

Risk of electrical shock and energy hazard when opened. All failures should be examined by a qualified technicians only. Risk of fire or electrical shock. The ventilation holes should be protected from foreign objects or dripping liquids. Please do not install power supplies in places with high ambient temperature or close to the heat source. Enclosed power supplies are intent to work in indoor locations, it’s not allowed to use power supplies outdoor, in dust or high moisture. Output current and output wattage must not exceed the rated values.
This replacement Amiga PSU has been designed for Commodore Amiga 500, 500+, 600, 1200 and CD32 vintage computer systems only and should be considered as an integral component of Amiga computer system. Do not connect to any other devices as it’s not a general purpose PSU. Manufacturer is not responsible for any consequences of unauthorised or arbitrary repairs, modifications or incorrect usage. Please notice that new, properly working replacement Amiga PSU is reducing the system’s potential fail rate but still is not guaranteeing that entire Amiga system will work correctly (it’s >30 years old).
