    Can anyone tell me the specs I would be looking for in a power adapter for a G3 PB Pismo (year 2000) 500MHz?

    I've seen various 45/65W on eBay all claiming to be compatible, and seen some yoyo style ones too. I've also read about there being two different size plugs on them and both having the same model number?

    Can any 500MHz Pismo owners shed some light on this?

    Thanks

    My Pismo uses a Yoyo adapter, says "Apple 45W Power Adapter" and 1999 on it. I'm pretty sure that would be what your looking for.

    Could you give me the model number as some listings have lists of equivalent/compatible adapter models. I think the yoyos are made only by Apple and it looks like they are out of production. I'd be looking at an equivalent brick style one.

    Thanks very much :)

    eBay will probably be your only bet on this one if you are after a yoyo adapter.
    My model number is M7332.

    I found a very similar one here:

    Except that it doesn't say "Apple 45W Power Adapter" at the top, rather "Apple Portable Power Adapter".

    It has the same model number of M7332, and the plug looks the same as mine.
    Make sure the one you buy is 45W.
