There are two adapters for it, one that recharges the battery, and one
that powers the machine directly. My battery charger is dead and
unlabeled wrt voltage, etc. The A/C adapter has two different outputs:
one at 2A and one at 3A, both at 6.4V. I assume the higher amperage is
needed if you have the optional printer. Viewing from the back, the right
most terminal is negative.

Sure, I'll trade you a dirty Symbol LS-8500 laser scan gun for it.
Guaranteed to make you go blind if you stare at the laser long enough ;-)
