Powering the LaCie F.A. Porsche external hard drive

Let me guess: you’ve got a trusty old LaCie “Design by F.A. Porsche” external hard drive, but the power supply got lost or broken, so you can’t power it up.
There’s an unfamiliar-looking power input on the back with holes and pins, so you’re not sure what power supply to buy to power it up, check it works, and get your files?
Everything’s gonna be OK, myVolts is here to help!

Take another look at the power input hole on the back of your LaCie F.A. Porsche. There are two types of possible connection; “Old Style”, which looks like this:

LaCie F.A. Porsche old style

LaCie F.A. Porsche Old style

“New Style”, which looks like this:

LaCie F.A. Porsche new style

LaCie F.A. Porsche new style

If you have the “Old Style”, you need to buy this part: http://myvolts.co.uk/product/36842/Power_Supply_and_Chargers/LaCie_External-hard-drive_Design-by-F.A.-Porsche-(old-style)_power_supply_adapter_charger

If you have the “New Style”, you need to buy this part: http://myvolts.co.uk/product/6273/Power_Supply_and_Chargers/LaCie_External-hard-drive_Hard-Drive-F.A.-Porsche-v.2_power_supply_adapter_charger

And if you’re still lost – please can ask! Email me at caroline AT myvolts DOT co DOT uk
or hit me up on Twitter, username @carolinezoids
Tell me all the details about your device, send me a photo of the power input hole, or the label on it, and I’ll tell you exactly the power adaptor to get!

    Hello there

    The power supply on my LaCie Porsche Hard Drive 500GB has just stopped working, the model is 301210EK and the serial number is SN 1140708090903C5S

    Can you help? It’s a UK power adapter

    Thanks
