I agree, Radio Shack was a really good source of electronic parts for many years. It was disappointing that they gradually faded from being a electronic parts supplier to a consumer electronics retailer.

The plus side in Vancouver is that we now have some really good dedicated electronic supply stores with a large amount of parts. When I need something now Radio Shack doesn't even cross my mind.

Radio Shack is still around. A manager at one told me there were about 2500 stores left in the U.S. If you can find one, they carry a wide assortment of interchangeable center-conductor DC adapter plugs that fit into a two-prong socket that you can splice into your power supply. They also have 12V cigarette lighter-style plugs and 120V transformers that can use those DC adapter plugs.

Radio Shack was just really handy; usually when I needed to fix something which by default was after work or on the weekend when Calgary's electronic supply stores were closed.
