boom box power supply
i was given a boom-box which appears to be in good condition, its power supply is either 10 D-cell batteries or a "pin type plug" at the rear which reads the typical 100-240V ac.
i have no plug, is it acceptable to bypass the plug and wire an alternate plug for AC use?
i am assuming something is built into the circuitry and the AC power does not need to be stepped down via a transformer prior to entering the unit? just want to make sure.
i never understood why there was never some some simple standard for AC plugs used in portable units, they all seem to have a different plug?
