Amazon.CA seems to have them, but they are not cheap:


I saw a few at the electronics store (Adisson electronics in Montreal) that looked to have the same specs but the end plugs would have needed to be changed, those were (at the time, about a year ago), went for $27.00 ea. They looked to be new-old stock.

For my FR-7, I use a 'pre-owned' Canon CA-CP200B (24V, 1.8A). It is available from the popular auction website for about US $15.

FR-5/FR-7/FR-7x/FR-8x consume about 0.5A. 1.8A is plenty.

You may need to do some minor surgery for the connector.
