In-line power switch for 48K Spectrum

In-line Power Switch for 48K Spectrums

A brand new on-off switch cable that connects between the DC jack of the Spectrum PSU and the computer's power socket. Saves wear and tear on the Spectrum DC input and eliminates the need to constantly connect / disconnect the DC plug for reset etc.

The switch leads have been specially wired to switch the positive supply line, which generic switch cables do not when used with the Spectrum. 

Please note before ordering: Some early Spectrum PSUs have a smaller diameter DC jack plug than is standard for modern 2.1mm jack sockets. To fit the socket on this cable the PSU plug (metal barrel) needs to be 5.5mm wide (not 5.0mm) - to the naked eye it's hard to tell so it's best to lay the DC jack on a ruler and use a magnifying glass. The shape is also slightly different - please see this diagram as a guide.

Replacement DC jack plug for Spectrum UK1400 PSU

Replacement DC Jack plug for Spectrum PSU

  • Good quality replacement for original PSU jack.
  • Remember when soldering: The Spectrum PSU is unusual in that the inner pin is negative and the outer barrel is positive. (Getting these reversed will fry your Spectrum!)

Retroleum SMART Card V2 interface for Sinclair ZX Spectrum

SMART Card V2 Spectrum Interface

This is the latest version of the SMART Card - My Spectrum SD-card game loader / joystick interface aimed at Spectrum 48K* users who want a simple, plug and play method of loading game files 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 loader supports .sna files, and most .tap files found on and other sites are also compatible. 

Although aimed at retro gamers, the SMART Card also has extra features such as its diagnostic ROM which can be used to identify bad RAM etc (15 different ROM images can be stored onboard, in fact). There's also an on-board Kempston joystick interface, reset / NMI buttons and 128K of buffer RAM.

The latest SNAPLOAD V2.3 ROM (installed as standard on the V2 SMART Card) allows snapshots of games to be saved and pokes to be entered. This is also compatible with the original V1 SMART Card - you can download it here if needed.

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

  • I have some suitable micro SD Cards here if required.
