If it's the manual for the CC7 which is needed, it's available at Alain's site:

Hi Steve

Can anyone tell me which are the more collectable Fidelity Chess Challengers to look out for?


..more collectable, as in rarity, then the original CC1 is my favourite 

...more collectable, as in most common, probably the CC7 which you just received. Otherwise, most other (Sensory) CC's versions crop up fairly regularly on ebay etc (eg CC10, 6, 8 and 9, less so 3 although there seem to have been a spate of these recently).

Best wishes

Thanks Steve

To my mind, chess challenger 9, Excel Mach III and of course an Elite are commonly the one to start a collection.

CC7 arrived today in great condition, with original box, instructions, adapter and wooden look pieces. Also came with a transparent board cover....Working great with one of my Mephisto adapters.

Thanks to you all......a fountain of knowledge!
 
I have just purchased the said machine on e-bay and can't wait for it to arrive. $12.99, is that a fair price for one of these?

Will let you know how I get on.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if the Fidelity chess challenger 7 has a battery option?

If not, is it possible to run a US machine in the UK on AC with some sort of adapter?

Your thoughts gratefully received!

Steve

The CC7 has no compartment for batteries. But nobody stops you from either making a kind of battery pack that plugs into the computer, or opening the computer and making a provision for batteries.

As far as specs are concerned, my Fidelity adapter says: output 9VDC, 350MA.

With best regards,

tom

Hi Steve 

No the CC7 has no battery option, but has the standard 2 pin Fidelity adaptor.

You can operate it in UK by using an appropriate AC convertor, I got mine from Maplins (model MW2P100) for a tenner and it works fine with CC7 and other older Fidelity models. There is an earlier thread about this in the archives somewhere.

Best wishes

Hello,

no, there is no battey option for CC7.
And yes, it is possible to run US computers with European powersupplies ; you can look at the archives of this forum to find the specifications of the adapter, all plastic fidelity work with the same adaptors (or even with Mephisto adaptors like HGN 5001)

Best,

Alain
