Hi, everyone, Kris from Stone Age gamer here, and have you ever tried to plug in a Coleco vision? It's nuts. Look at this thing. It's a massive. Well, fortunately, we live in the future. A future where the ColUSB exists. It takes your gigantic power supply for your ColecoVision and makes it teeny tiny. Let's take a look. 

[00:00:22] OK, so what you see here is my Colecovision, and this is the massive power brick that powers this thing. Just to put this into perspective, in case you've never actually seen a coelco vision in person before, this is the power supply for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. You've probably seen one of these around. It is literally half the size. Two of these covers one of these massive coleco vision ones. Even look at that just such a massive power brick. And if you plug this into a power strip, unless you have dangling off the end, you're looking at either one two three four probably five different power outlets would be covered by this massive thing. 

[00:01:05] So how do we combat this? We use a ColUSB. This box seems incredibly flimsy and light because it is very light because the thing inside of it, the little doodad that lets you do we're going to do is very, very small. Check this out. Crack this open right here. You've got this little Q&A on instruction paper here, and that's it. This is the item itself. There's not a whole lot to it, and what it does is it allows us to let's get this beast out of the way. It allows us to just plug it right into the back of your colleague vision, right where irregular power supply would go. Make sure you're facing the right way and Tada! Plugs right in there, and then you can take one of these guys, just a regular old charger, one of these standard USB-C guys right here and just plug that right into the back and you are good to go. Plug that into your wall. And now your Coleco Vision works without needing that massive, massive power brick to play your games in that great. 

[00:02:10] The ColUSB is available now So you can power your Coleco vision without the use of a forklift. Thanks for watching everybody! If you liked what you saw here today, please follow.
