Hello, I bought a Fanatec Base 2.5 for cheap, but it's missing the power cord. The problem is, is that my parents did research on a potential power supply, and they came to the conclusion that I need to buy the official $90 power supply for the base in order for the base to work correctly. Any ideas to how I might circumvent this issue and save money in the process?

You should be able to find a suitable power supply at an electronic store, all you need is a 24v 7.5a, with the proper plug and proper polarity connection, but it might get close in price to the original one.

Finding something in a thrift store could be tough.. I've been looking without success there. Don't get too fixated on specifically 7.5A.. that would narrow it down. That's the max number that can be drawn so you can go bigger (but not smaller).

I have this 10A 24v for my tactile amps and I just tried it and it physically fits the Fanatec CSL Elite base, has the right polarity. The wheel starts and is successful through self test, but that's as far as I took it.
