    I think the 19+ volts used on the C2 was just a cost savings measure. Don't know for sure, but is sure smells that way. There just aren't that many things readily available in the printer world that is speced at 18-19 volts. There is a ton of stuff at 12v and some at 24v.

    I agree. I suspect that the components that matter are rated at 24v and they are just supplying 19v
    However, I can't prove that :)

    Does the C2 use a standard socket male/female plug? The 24V adapter on the R2 uses one that looks like an old PS/2 connector from 90's computers keyboards.

    It uses a 3 prong plug and the other end is the laptop barrel connection. I wonder why Robo went that route on the R2. Im assuming it was probably cheaper.
