The original power supply although quite reliable, it does generate huge amounts of heat and in some cases can warp the laser (especially on the first generation models) and also in extreme cases, can warp the console housing / shell.

Our new power supply was designed so it uses less power, runs much cooler and safer compared to mains voltage.

The new power supply is a simple DIY installation that takes 10 minutes and is compatible with ALL fat models.

It is also compatible with all the newly designed mods such as the PS1Digital, xStation, MODE, PSIO and MemCard Pro.

Please take care when replacing as the original unit runs on mains supply and may still have some power stored.

We have taken the time to write a guide as to whether buying a PicoPSU is right for you:

Features

NEW * User Changeable Power LED Colour
Completely customise your console's power LED colour with a simple switch, NO SOLDERING REQUIRED!.
You can choose between Red, Green & Blue - or a mix of them to create more colours!

NEW * Optional Console Fan Pin Header (5V - 2 Pin - 800mA MAX - JST XH)
Particularly with a MODE with HDD installed, it get's quite warm inside the console, so we offer a version with a Fan & Mount to ensure good air circulation within the console to keep it cool.

Optional Console Fan Pin Header (5V - 3 Pin - 800mA MAX)
Particularly with a MODE with HDD installed, it get's quite warm inside the console, so we offer a version with a Fan & Mount to ensure good air circulation within the console to keep it cool.

* Correct Reset Logic Needed For Proper Operation

To ensure the console is in correct operation, special reset logic was present on the Original PSU so it was also needed on the PS1PicoPSU. This will ensure correct operation of the console.

* Optional Solder Pad For Console Reset

Ideal for use when installing our PS1 In-Game-Reset IGR Mod Board.

* Fused Input Protection

If something shorts out within the Console / Power Brick / PicoPSU, the fuse will blow to stop more damage from happening.

* Reverse Polarity Protection

If you accidently use the wrong external power brick, it won't damage the PicoPSU or Console.

* High Grade Polymer Capacitors

We have spent a great deal of money by using high grade KEMET polymer capacitors to ensure the lowest output ripple, highest reliability and highest possible capacitor life.

* Fits ALL Models

The PS1PicoPSU has both 5 pin and 7 pin connectors to suite all models of the Original Fat PS1 Console.

* MAXIMUM POWER!

The PS1PicoPSU can provide up-to 3a per voltage rail meaning there's plenty of power for the system and plenty of mods.

Mount Types

1. Standard - Download STL
 - This is the standard option, it comes with a DC Input Socket only.

2. 30mm Fan - Download STL
 - This mount comes with a 30mm Fan to help cool the console, it also comes with a DC Input Socket.

3. Noctua 40mm (Fan Not Included) - Download STL
 - This mount has space for a Noctua 5V NF-A4x10 fan, it also comes with a DC Input Socket.

4. USB-C Power Delivery PD - Download STL
 - This mount is similar to the Without Fan mount, but you can use a USB-C PD brick to power your console! *

5. Noctua 40mm  (Fan Not Included) & USB-C Power Delivery PD - Download STL
 - This mount is similar to the Noctua 40mm mount, but you can use a USB-C PD brick to power your console! *

* You must use a USB-C PD Power Brick that can deliver at-least 45w of power and has the capability to output 12v. If these conditions aren't met, your console either won't turn on or won't work correctly.


DC Input Socket Power Brick Recommendations

You also need to purchase a 12v 3a DC adapter, center positive, 5.5x2.5mm barrel size which can be purchased on eBay or Amazon.

If you use a non-branded / cheap power supply, you may notice interferrance, noise on the screen and console booting issues.


Aliexpress Counterfeit Warning!




It has come to our attention that some sellers on AliExpress have been counterfeiting our PS1 PicoPSU.

These clones / counterfeits are completely not up to standard, use fake parts and could damage your console.

We only use the highest quality parts sourced from reputable sources such as Digikey, Mouser, RS etc...

Upon close inspection to the clones, we have found several flaws listed below.

* Fake Voltage Regulators
* Wrong Capacitor Values / Cheap Unbranded Capacitors.
* Incorrect Inductor Coil Values
* Incorrect Console Reset Logic
* Slightly Wrong Output Voltage

All of these flaws can lead to a damaged console very very quickly. The only legitimate seller of these is this website.
