Thanks. Before I read your responses I found a Reddit thread saying a pal snes power supply works so that what I'm using. Does that seem safe?

That seems VERY strange to me, the UK SNES takes a + centre pin, the USA one takes a - centre pin, I've just pulled one to bits and stuck a UK barrel socket thingy in a USA system to make life easier, and to begin with it wouldn't work, as obviously they were the wrong way round, so I cracked the PSU open, swapped the wires internally on there, and away it went.

Hrm, it's definitely a USA nes and a UK snes plug.

I'm also thinking I should buy a good multi power adapter as I don't trust the old ones, i always unplug them afraid of fire!

My bad... I was reading that as a USA SNES, not NES.. I am an idiot 😛
