Powerbook G3 (Pismo) 500Mhz Power Adapter
 
Can anyone tell me the specs I would be looking for in a power adapter for a G3 PB Pismo (year 2000) 500MHz?

I've seen various 45/65W on eBay all claiming to be compatible, and seen some yoyo style ones too. I've also read about there being two different size plugs on them and both having the same model number?

Can any 500MHz Pismo owners shed some light on this?

Thanks

As an example this would be a good buy -

No idea where you're from but if you're in US I would buy this - it's a good price. 400 or 500mhz - it doesn't matter, they use the same adapter. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm in the UK so a UK/euro seller is preferable.

The link you gave doesn't say what size plug /jack is on the adapter. I'm looking at an ebay page and an online shop right now, both claiming to be compatible with Pismos yet one says it's 7.5mm wide and the other says 9mm.:Confused:

This would work for sure.
