Console/Screen Voltage and mA Guide

Do you have a technical question that doesn't really fit a specific console? Want some general info on electronics, hacking, making cookies, etc? Here's the place to ask! Go nuts.

Tested both of my Psone's.

At 7.5v the current draw is around 580mA-590mA not 1000mA

Also the Psone is listed as running between 7.2v and 7.5v , but it will run between 7.2v and up to at least 12v probably 14.8v also but I haven't tested that.

Does anyone have an approximation of the Super Joy mAh? I know there's several models, I just recently found one with the cartridge slot the size of two gameboy games stacked on top of each other, where the battery pack usually is. But a rough estimate would be nice.

Finally tested my N64.

N64 with Expansion Pack and unmodded Psone screen at 40% volume ----- 1.9A

So the guide is spot on with that one :)

How long will the Gamecube last with ShockSlayer's 5v/12v bridge (so just running off 5v) and building your own regulator?

About the same exact amount of time.

The PS2 Slim V14 (Scph-75001) draws 1.9A during gameplay and can run as low as 7.7v. It is the larger motherboard and not the smaller version.

Awesome, Thanks Hailrazer. :) I was thinking about making a PS2 portable and was afraid of the high current draws. :P

FOR THE PS3 SLIM

Power supply in is universal
12V on the large prongs at 18A

5.5V @ 0.94A

And use this for all the other specs (fat and newer slims)

No wiring diagrams.
Setting up a website- I need input!
If you've got time- PM me for link.

What would be the console voltage and mA consumption of a TurboGrafx 16?
