Will there be a Power Supply included? Will it work on country X?

All tiers get a power supply included, except the 'Just The Board'. It's a regular 9V power supply, a very common affair.

The Power Supply included with the Next will be multi-voltage (100-240V) with several different AC connectors to swap, covering all major countries.

For those keen to find out more tech details, the PSU is a 9V 2A 100-240V, with a connector like the original Spectrum (but with the correct positive in the middle, unlike the Speccy PSU).

For example.

We would recommend a 2A PSU for a fully populated Next with external interfaces etc. You can never have too many Amps :)

Do NOT use a Spectrum PSU with the Next. It would need to be adapted for use with the Next as an original PSU has the positive on the outside and negative on the inside. If in doubt, don't try it.
