Inverted supply polarity killed Roberts RD-50
on 21 July 2015
Received today - great!
Plugged it into my Roberts RD-50 (as listed as being compatible in seller's Amazon listing title) - not so great...
Smoke shot out of the radio - it turns out that the polarity on the supplied power supply was *REVERSED.*
The RD-50 radio requires a supply that is centre-negative, the supply I received was centre-positive.
Exit stage-right, one previously working radio.
