ACK 600 (Cannon A70 power adaptor) question?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Fernando Margueirat, Aug 22, 2003.

  1. Hi all

    Does anyone knows on the ACK 600 power adaptor what part of the conector
    (the outside or the inside pin) is the possitive one?

    TIA

    "Oh, thats easy, it's stamped on the rubber cover. I'll just go check it
    now."

    Oh.
    It's not.
    And it's not in the manual either.

    Specifically, for the A40 adapter:
    <http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&selm=b072t2%24m7t0g%241%40ID-118227.news.dfncis.de>

    But wait, here's a definitive answer for the A70:
    <http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&selm=mJtDa.1%24Z47.0%40news-binary.blueyonder.co.uk>

    Both agree, centre pin positive.

  3. I know. I guess they use it as a way of forcing you to buy a u$s 40 adapter
    when you could probably find a similar one (if you knew the polarity) for
    u$s 8.

    Thanks anyways.
