This is an update to our prior post from March 28th, 2016.
We’re excited to announce the official release of the Universal PSU Kit and Upgrade service from Ultimate-Micro.com.
The Universal PSU works Internationally and with all AC power from 90 to 264V, and 47 to 63Hz. The Universal PCB mounts in any Apple II or /// Enclosure. We Universally have you covered!
The Universal PSU Kit is designed to be installed in your existing Apple II or /// Power Supply Enclosure and replace your old Power Supply PCB. All connections can be made by the user and are safe, simple, and designed to last for the next decade and beyond of use. The Kit is also uninstallable and the enclosure isn’t modified in any way. So those concerned with collecting and authenticity of hardware need not worry.
The Kit is the user-installable version of the Universal PSU. The Upgrade is the service where the user sends Ultimate-Micro a Power Supply Enclosure and we perform the install process for the user and return the upgraded Power Supply. We also have a KFEST option and special show price for those who would like to take delivery at KFEST. We’re still not sure about holding an informal session, possibly during SolderFest to assist in upgrades, but we’re working on those details and looks like it will happen. Someone from Ultimate-Micro will also be in attendance to help answer questions or assist as needed.
Orders are planned to start shipping about July 15th or once we have received stock from the factory.
We’re also pleased to announce two Community members have reviewed the Universal PSU Kit and have posted videos of their installation.
Chris Torrence and his IIe Power Supply
Joe Strosnider and his IIgs Power Supply

We’re glad to help bring the Apple II and /// in to the remainder of the 21st Century and hopefully beyond!
