Power switch cable for ZX Spectrum with LED

Power switch cable for ZX Spectrum with LED

  • Inline switch cable, fits between the UK1400 PSU and Spectrum power socket
  • Saves wear and tear and tedious insert/remove cycles.
  • Green LED, useful as the Spectrum16/48 has no power indicator
  • 2.1mm pin / 5.5mm outer diameter socket and plug
  • Correctly switches the positive supply - most generic cables will switch the negative side because of the unusual polarity used by the Spectrum 
  • Please note: A few early Spectrum PSUs have a 5.00mm diameter plug -this will be too loose for the socket on this cable. It's quite difficult to judge by eye, but you can refer to this diagram for assistance.

Retroleum SMART Card V2 interface for Sinclair ZX Spectrum

SMART Card V2 Spectrum Interface

The SMART Card is a SD-card game loader / kempston compatible joystick interface aimed at Spectrum 48K* users who want a simple, plug and play method of loading games quickly. Upon power up, you are presented with a list of games on your SD Card from which you can select using the joystick or keys. The .sna and .tap files found on spectrumcomputing.co.uk, www.worldofspectrum.org and other websites are supported.

The SMART Card also has extra features such as its diagnostic ROM which can be used to identify bad RAM chips etc. There's also reset / NMI buttons so snapshots of games can be saved, pokes entered etc.

*The V2 SMART Card fits - and works with - all UK Spectrum models with 48K or greater, but please note the software only supports 16K/48K games.

  • I have some suitable micro SD Cards listed above, if required.

12-9-2021 - AVAILABILITY: The chip that SMART Card is based around is out of stock worldwide, however I'm working on an alterative solution. Please bear with me..
