Dead Radion XR30Pro G3 power supply

Bought my 8 G3ís 4 years ago, and apparently things have changed. One of the power supplies blew, and replacements for the G3ís donít use that weird connector anymore. Is it worth trying to get the power supply repaired, or is there an adapter if I buy a new power supply, or...?

Hmm...that one says 36V but only 3.3 amps. The Radion is 36v 4.2a. I found this one; not sure if it’ll just fit inside...

Of course I ordered new power supplies for 2 units today. I knew I should of searched here first. Iíve got one dead power supply and Iím getting intermittent low voltage warning out of two others.

If you order the XR30wG3 Pro power supplies they come with an adapter for the older gen units. $150 for a $25 power supply is a bit crazy. Especially when who knows how long my Gen2 units are going to last. Going to see if I can cancel my order before they ship and Amazon these bad boys.

Just order a full set based on a guide on clay-boa. Should be a piece of cake to swap.
