some questions about the air compressor AC adaptor

Recommended Posts

ok. thank you guys, the tamiya basic air compressor w/airbrush finally arrived, and i am so happy.


althought, it does not go with the pack battery or AC adapter.


than instruction said the tamiya AC adapter is not sold outside of Japan.


so how can i do?


looks like the pack battery output is 7.2 V.


i checked local stores and found some AC adapters which have output from 12V to 16V. anybody konws if i can use them instead?


and it is kina hard to find the right DC plug to fit the AC adapter jack, too.


sigh....need some help...thank you.....

thank you again, Greg.


see, i just think it is kina rediculous if i could not use a normal AC adapter for the tamiya air compressor.

the AC in USA is the same as in Japan which is 110V.


and i checked these 7.2V pack battery, and they are so expensive, from 25 to 50 dollars each.
