I have read the posts on this forum about not using the EA-72 AC adaptor with the C-series Zaurii. Personally, I have owned an SL-C750 and 860 and have used this adaptor in the U.S. without any problems on both models. I now have a C-1000.

I have seen auctions on Ebay for the EA-75, seen here: EA-75 AC Adaptor

With the scarcity of EA-70S adaptors to be found, is the EA-75 considered to be a comparable adaptor for use in the U.S.?

As I understand, this is a new worldwide adaptor designed by Sharp. It is shipped with the new SL-3100. As such, you are safe using it with any model of the Zaurii in the United States and Europe. The discussions that you read concerned a power adaptor that came with SL-3000 and SL-1000 and were designed for 100 v (which is in Japan).

However, you may still buy EA-70S if you like at amazon.com. I like this model because its not plug-heavy (doesn't fall out of the recepticle).

I bought two of the EA-70s adapters from Streamlinecpus (The US affiliate of Trisoft Japan), for my C1K. They do a lot of business around here and have a good reputation.

The '70s was supplied with the US-marketed 6K. I've had no problems using mine on my C1K.

Hi all,

the EA-75 is not CE/FCC certified. Also the japanese writing
on it should say "Don't use outside Japan" (if anybody can
read japanese and has an EA-75 we would be happy for
a confirmation).

So the point is: No dealer can sell the EA-75 legally in Europe
or the US without testing.

We made our CE/FCC tests with the EA-70(S). The test result
is always for the device _and_ the AC adaptor, so we will
continue to deliver the EA-70(S) with our units.

Long story short: The EA-75 may work outside Japan but
for a professional (corporate) user/dealer it would require
a CE/FCC test.

The Ea-70s adapters are also what we will supply here in the US with each unit. There are still plenty of them available.

What is the difference between EA-70 and EA-70S?

Do you know the max. charge current the power source should be able to supply (for the C1000)?

Jochen,

there's no real difference, it's Sharpspeak smile.gif
The AC adaptor itself is the EA-70. If it's in the
nice box with an AC cord, it's called EA-70S.

Specification for the EA-70(S) is 5V / 2A.

Better don't try a different charger, use the
search function or Google for reasons why not.

Should have been better named "EA-70C" for "Cord". ;-)

Thank you.
