Does anyone know if the Pro 197 uses the same DC adapter as the Pro 106?

On eBay the 106 adapter costs half what the 197 one does. Is there a better place to get the DC adapter for the 197? Thanks

I have both . . . the 106 wants 9V, 500mA, tip positive; the 197 wants 12V, 600mA, also tip positive. Their respective connectors are very different.

Hope that helps.

cig plug is good, but make sure it's the right one for the scanner.

The 197 will run on anywhere from 12v-14v dc, so power connector is your choice as long as you can supply at lest 600ma. The 106, however, is 9v 300ma so hardwire is a bit out of the question unless you know how to drop the voltage down. The connectors into the scanner are two different sizes so they are not interchangable.
