These are supplied with their own power adapters which are obviously the right ones. That's a lot easier than trying to source compatible power adapters for the existing enclosures. | Report abuse Reply to phil22 Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Power supply for External HD units> Related ressources: ForumBroken pin on external HD power supply ForumPower supply for Maxtor OneTouch Plus 4 External HDD ForumExternal Enclosure + Adv Format - power draw & allocation unit size?
