View Full Version : Replacement wallwart for inflatable?

I purchased a turkey inflatable this past year for Thanksgiving for my daughter, but it died the day before Thanksgiving. I think the little wallwart that the motor plugs into (this is the first inflatable I've had like this) went bad. Since it has a special plug on it, it will take a little bit of rework to try to get something else to work (and it would need to work outdoors). Does anyone know a supplier who sells replacements for these sorts of things?

Or a source that maybe makes a series of adapters of sizes and types? I have this one straggler that uses prongs instead of a barrel.

Can you post a pic of what you need to replace?

Was it the big turkey or the small one?

It was the one that stands about 5ft tall

Sure, will have to get it out of the garage tomorrow, but that is probably a good idea Tim.

If it was the big one I'd say I'd trade my working little one for your broken big one.

Thank Jon, but I think I will try to work through it a little longer (I should be able to at least hack something non-ideal to make it work).

It is just crazy (though I should probably not be surprised) that it died within the first season.

They don't make the power supplies or the fans like they used to, which is good for price and bad for longevity. I had my 1 year old Santa die before Christmas and I found a wallwart in my box that was close in voltage and amps and spliced it in. I don't throw those things away.

Agreed on all accounts. I could (and probably will) end up doing what you suggested, I just was trying to get something that was "designed" to work outside in the elements (what little good that did me this year)

I wrapped mine up in a bag. Good in a pinch.

I believe that you might be able to find a replacement power supply at yardinflatables.com
