Actually, I think that's an Apple II Plus power supply.

Actually it was from an Apple IIe... ;-) It used the very same power supply from a II plus. I was an Apple II freak. I had an Apple II plus and later an Apple IIe. My final configuration included an 1 MB expansion board from Applied Engineering (remember this one?)

Cheers,
Gabriel.

LOL! Good stuff Gabe!

I remember Applied Engineering (they're still around?) but not the 1MB card. Wasn't aware you could juice up an Apple II that much.

Keep up the good work.

Default 2E power supply

I need a power supply for my 2E. Any suggestions? I haven't been able to find an original. Gabriel, do you want to sell that one?

Wow! Awesome. Unfortunately I took the pictures and threw it away...

However I know someone that may have an original Apple IIe power supply, I will check with him and get back to you.

Cheers,
Gabriel.
