  • If you resell this kit:
    • it is your responsibility to ensure that the buyer is aware of the safety instructions.
    • as reseller, you become responsible in the unlikely event of component failures/bad end-user builds etc.
  • I do not supply the black pushbutton cap with this kit, as many people would not require it, and it would inflate the price unnecessarily. You can source a suitable power cap under manufacturer codes ALPS-TAK8 or ALPS UE200011. Third party alternatives may be available. Thank you Sebastian for this information.

Ramoth’s Dragon power board in kit version – brought to you by DragonPlus Electronics.

Please read the safety notice regarding this home-brew power board before contemplating purchase.

This board requires a suitable 12V DC Regulated power supply capable of supplying between 2A and 3.5A, with a centre-positive 2.1mm barrel jack. A suitable power supply on the UK market is available from Rapid. This is NOT supplied with the board.

This board is much more than a simple replacement for the original Dragon power supply solution.

First of all – what will you lose?

  • The original RF modulated video output is not present on this board. Does anyone really use this today?
  • You will no longer need the white power brick outside the Dragon.

And what do you gain?

  • Once paired with a suitable external power supply (see link above), you will gain a much cooler, more efficient power source for your Dragon.
  • You will have uprated capacity on the 5 volt rail – up to 2A available with the supplied fuse
      • Potentially the LM2596 can support 3A although this is unlikely to be needed for any D32/D64 applications and the 2A fuse protects your machine better.
  • The board is configurable to work with all Dragons except the SECAM models – so D32, D64, D200, D200E and Tano Dragon.
  • Additional board headers make it really easy to tap into that additional 5 volt capacity – for powering some peripherals – e.g. a Gotek.
  • The board can support RGB solutions via the 10-pin IDC box connector.
