Dreamcast Pico PSU

Upgrade your power supply to a PicoPSU. The stock power supply will run too hot if you put in a GDEMU so you will want to either modify the stock PSU or install a PicoPSU. This provides clean power to the Dreamcast and will not run hot with a GDEMU (or other optical drive emulator). The PicoPSU is a tried and true solution for Dreamcast power. It also allows you to use a Dreamcast from any region on your countries power plug/voltage. This is available with and without a power adapter in case you already have one from an old laptop. Colored plugs are also available just leave a checkout note if you want a particular color.

What’s Included

Pico PSU, Dreamcast PicoPSU adapter board, Dreamcast 3D printed picoPSU plug, Power adapter (optional)

Other Notes

  • Power adapter can take 100-240V input so compatible worldwide, you just need the standard plug for your region (US/Japan plug is included)
  • Use your Dreamcast on any power voltage or in any country without modifying the console
  • 3D printed color options for the rear plug (specify at checkout if you want other than black)
  • Powers your Dreamcast with very low heat production since it is only 12V
  • Black 3D printed plug now made with a resin printer so it is completely smooth and  there are no layer lines, this makes it visibly perfect.
