After seeing the image of this product, I thought this was the official SNS-002 charger for a Super Nintendo. When it arrived however, I found out it was actually a Tomee 3-in-1 AC Adapter for SNES/NES/Genesis. I was initially fine with this, as it wasn't very expensive. After plugging in the Super Nintendo I had just bought that came without an AC adapter however, I noticed big green lines scrolling down the screen. After researching it, thinking it was the system, I found out that was caused by a power supply that doesn't provide the right power. I went to pull the adapter out of the outlet to check it, and one of the prongs broke off and stuck in the outlet. This was the first time I went to remove the adapter, and I did not use any excessive force. Obviously it no longer worked at all after that. After looking at it as I was trying to do when I pulled it out in the first place, I saw that the adapter not only doesn't match the image the seller provides, it doesn't even match the packaging! The adapter shown right on the packaging says it is 9V 850mA, while the product inside says 10V 1000mA. Overall this product is a total waste of money and the seller is trying to completely deceive their customers. Do not buy this product, it's not worth even the couple dollars it costs.

The picture clearly showed a Licensed SNES power adapter. However what I received was a Retro AC Universal Adapter, that works with The NES, SNES, and Genesis. Not only was the cord length too short, but it was far too sensitive to shorting out.(A light tap on the cord and the system reset) Also, the cheap flimsy thing made my games look terrible. There was lines running through the screen. I know It's not my console, because it was in perfect working order last week, and has been for many many years. I take very good care of my SNES, and I would never taint it by plugging this awful unlicensed adapter back into it. How disappointing....

This adapter is generic. It was made in china and can be used for the Snes, nes, and genesis.

The output is 9v unlike the 10v put out by the official snes adapter.

This did not work for my super nintendo. I do not recommend this for anyone. It only kind of worked, it provided just enough power for my machine to turn on, but not enough to actually play, which renders this AC adaptor completely useless.

This thing is absolute garbage, they show an actual licensed SNES adapter, and what shows up is the cheapest piece of crap I have ever seen. I went to plug it in, and one of the metal prongs simply fell out into the outlet. To make matters worst it wasn't even shipped on time. Making this my second purchase from amazon, and my second product that didn't work upon opening.

Bought this and tried it out from the seller and it's a generic cord that has 2 different sized ends. the pack says 10v but plugged into the super nintendo i got the same thick black lines running down the screen and the screen would split while playing(bottom of the picture jumping to the top). NOT convenient when trying to dodge fireballs on Super Mario. $10 wasted, i would recommend looking on craigslist/pawnshops first.

This was very disappointing. And it was a mistake from my part for not seeing the previous reviews the other people made about this product before making the purchase.

Don't let the images fool you, the garbage they send you is an unofficial, terribly made AC adapter designed to output incorrect values of voltages.

The packaging said it provided 9V @ 850 mA. The actual product inside stated that it provided 10V @ 1 A. This already seemed kind of awkward, so I decided to measure the output voltage with a voltmeter before plugging it into my SNES.. guess what, It measured 15.84 Volts, almost 16 Volts!!! I didn't even dare to try it if it still works.

Do yourself a favor and don't risk your valuable SNES by buying this device. Look somewhere else.

I can only say the same things as most of the other reviewers. This is not an official Nintendo cable. It is a cheap piece of junk that did not even work. It was almost as if the AC adapter was just an empty plastic shell, it was SO lightweight. Plus, when I plugged it in, it FELL out of the wall! I had to return it.
