This is not for xbox 360 but i know a lot of people here has owned a xbox before and probably knows the answer to this, because this forum is more active than the other one sad.gif
I lost my xbox plug recently moving into a new house, but i did find a plug that fits into the xbox that is 125v and 3a but the xbox says 123 2.1a u think it will be okay to use on it?

Just because these forums are more active doesnt mean you can post things that dont belong. And If it is just a cord (no brick) then all it does is bring in the electricity so those would probably be the max it could handle, basicly Im saying it should work. Why not just test it out???

That's because the transformer was build into the chord on your router... in this case it's just two leads. You need to learn some basic electronics.

Thats usually bevause routers have a brick on them to control the amount of power that goes to the router. If your saying this thing is just a cord it will work.

That wont work even if the plug was Xbox size.

That will work.

Trust me I used an old Sony CD player cord on mine for a bit (till I got like 5 recal cords for free he he)...

You can buy a cord for around $5 on ebay.
