So some sailors that my custom-officer friend arrested for smuggling apparently has an Xbox 360 Zephyr (manufacture year was 2007) without any cable, power brick etc. I've manage to, ahem, secure that thing in my possession.

So now I was planned to find a power brick for it.

What I want to know if I can buy any power brick of Xbox 360 and plug it in just like that ? My country using 220 voltage of electricity and we have no idea what voltage that Xbox 360 use for power.

No, the power brick has to match that specific build of Xbox 360. There are 4 variations, I believe. I don't know if you can find third party power bricks over there, but the only reliable way to get a new power supply in the US is to order one through Microsoft support for ~$40.

I see. Thanks for the input.

We don't know if that thing was for Asia or US/EU market since there's no indicator whatsoever beside the manufacture date/year behind it.

Not quite true eastx. The old original powerbrick (203W) will fit into all three models prior to the new xbox slim.

The plugs are forward compatible, but not the other way.

And is it also all region voltage compatible, prog ? I mean, PS3 using power source which is 110 volt to 240 volt in its body...

Could have swore the input voltage was 110-240V on my consoles, but both my 360's powerbrick & PS3 only take 220-240V. So they are not all region compatible.


Usually these days, almost everything is 110-240V compatible.

True that. Almost everything is 110-240V compatible. But in Xbox 360 case, that writing only appears in Power Brick ; not in the console body.

That's why I can't decide if that Xbox needs a specific power brick or not.

As long as the power brick is the correct voltage (220-240V), you'll be fine.

As you see here, the oldest 203w powerbrick fits all 3 models. I bet you can find a cheap one at ebay or amazon.

Confirmed Zepher version, then. This is very helpful, bror ! Takk :D


EDIT :

Just to make sure ; so there's no chance 203w power brick using 110volt then ? I mean, we're still don't know the origin of that Xbox 360 although we're now sure it's Zepher (which is using 203w power brick).

The 203W powerbrick comes in both 110V & 240V, you'll just have to buy the 240V one.

Good job, Progmetal. Been a while since I looked into all that.

I barely remembered it myself. Nice to be able to help in any way.
