    Any pictures of the power adapter?

    I'm interested to see how small/neat it is, ideally with a UK 3-pin plug attached.

    Thanks

    It's 1A @ 18V so it's never going to be tiny.

    This looks to be about right size wise:

    Same power output, just higher voltage and lower current.

    In a box: 1x Radio, 1x (Beta) Controller, 1x Receiver, 1x SB2 wired (silver), 1x SB (black), 1x SliMP3 (with rear shield)

    If you have any others, let me know, I'm interested!!

    Thanks for that, looks similar to the Boom adapter.

    ..

    Actually size wise it looks closer to the SB3 power adapter.

    Well, it's a lot smaller than the Boom supply I have, but that is a Beta unit too, so I'm not the best person to ask about it all.

    What is your concern about the power supply? If it is because of placement in a multi socket extension, there shouldn't be any problems with that. My Boom supply is a little large and there is no way you could have two next to each other (not that you would). It also isn't too large to be transported around in a bag.

    Mine as well, both Boom and Radio PS are beta, the Radio's is much, much
    smaller than the Boom's. By eyeball, under 1/4 the size. The Baby's is
    not much bigger than the brick for my Motorola Razr phone

    OK, something definitive.

    The PS for the Receiver (non beta) is slightly narrower than the UK plate installed in it. The PS for the Radio and the Touch is the same width.

    hope that helps.
