I've been trying to find a replacement for my SL but every one I buy the circular plug that fits into the back of the cradle is to small. I'm thinking the specs of my current adapter are not correct because I'm getting the correct adapters except for that round plug. My original says 5v 500mA.

I even got one from ratshack with the changeable tips but none fit.

Does anyone have a source and item number for this?

Thanks
SJ

P.S. my dealer is long gone

From memory it is something like 1200mA, but the pamphlet I found says 500mA.

Take the cradle with you to the store.

If no one has answered I will be in front of mine next week, Ill have a look then if still needed.

if you still have the original adapter you could cut off the round end and solder or crimp it onto the new power adapter.

I've actually thought about splicing them together but I'd just like to get the proper one. Thought maybe someone here had ordered one from someplace.

Well I spliced them together but it doesn't work. Still looking for a part # or place to order a replacement. Thanks

..... so 3+ years on and this stuff is no longer even manufactured. However for anyone unearthing this thread and looking to replace a Nevo wall wart this little trick is worth knowing:
The DC jack in the NevoSL base is actually a standard 2.5mm jack as supplied with most replacement wall warts. However, for some dumb reason known only to the designers the diameter of the hole in the case was made somewhat smaller such that only the original custom manufacturers jack would fit.
Solution: open up the base, drop out the small pcb with the DC jack mounted on it. Take a sharp 15/64th drill bit and open up the DC jack hole in the case. The case material is as soft as cheese so you can do this by just twisting the drill bit in your fingers. Resassemble the unit and you have a dock that will accept a standard jack.
I discovered this trick after a client gave me an SL & dock they no longer wanted but they had lost the wall wart.
Hope this helps someone out.
Thank you for your considered response
