Specs for Roku 2 Power Adapter?

Postby itsblitz » Sat Oct 27, 2012 3:33 pm

I accidentally returned my Roku power adapter to Comcast when I returned my modem to them (stupid) and I cannot for the life of me locate a replacement. Obviously they're out of stock from Roku, so I ordered one from amazon, but it didn't fit the Roku. I can't find the specs for the power adapter online, otherwise I would bring them to radio shack or something similar. And of course, I don't have the original power adapter so I can't look on it.

Can anyone help? Has anyone found a power adapter that works with the Roku 2? In the alternative, can anyone give me the specs of the Roku 2 power adapter (including the size of the part that plugs into the Roku)?

Thanks in advance!!!

Thank you, this is helpful!

Anyone have a link to buy one of these? I'm still having a hard time finding anything online. . . .

I am also looking for a power cord and have gone through all outlets to get the cord. I read somewhere you can find them at Radio Shack so I went in but my small Chicago store did not carry the correct watt/volt. You may have better luck at a larger version of Radio Shack. Otherwise hopefully Roku will get them back in stock soon since I have been waiting a few months to get my new one.

^ Most RadioShacks don't stock the correct PS, but they can order one that matches the specs for you.

Great, thank you! I think I need to go to a different Radio Shack, cause the girl that "helped" me at the one I went to was clueless.

Thanks again!

The output specs for my Roku 2 charger are completely different.

Output: 5V - 1A

If the power supply is able to produce 2.5A instead of 1A, it won't hurt anything--the Roku will draw what it needs.

Also, over the years I have seen both 5V and 5.2V mentioned, without being able to determine which is correct, though I suspect either would be close enough, differing by only 4%.

For anyone else who may need one, I just bought this power adapter for less than $4 shipped. It's only 1A, but that's what my original LT and XD adapters were rated at, so I figured it should be fine.

If you prefer to go with 2.5A, these are $7.69 shipped.
