We do not sell Power Supplies for this product at this time. Your best bet will be to reach out to Seagate directly to see if they have it available as a Service Part.

question

Is the power adaptor suitable for 240V using in Australia ?
Asked by: Chi L.
March 2019: Yes. I bought two of these and both came with five different plug adapters that affix to a modular power cord (w/o its own terminals). Useful set, though these aren't really meant for travel. EU AC input plug, p/n 100693228 US/CN AC input plug, p/n 100693227 UK AC input plug, p/n 100693229 KR AC input plug, p/n 100693230 AU AC input plug, p/n 100693231 This probably doesn't matter, but the UK one has a plastic dummy ground plug. All the rest are two-prong. Hope this helps.
