1-Chip SuperCICs are in stock again.

The problem with the official PAL NES/SNES PSU units is that they output alternating current, where the US and Japanese consoles expect direct current, so if you put an AC supply on a DC machine it will fry it. Interestingly, the reverse is not true, and you can use DC power supplies of the correct voltage on PAL SNES consoles, so that’s probably why you got away with it, since you had a third party PSU that was DC and so worked with everything.

The RGB amp can be adapted to work on a PAL SNES RGB cable, but it’s fiddly, much easier to get a new, suitable cable.
