What is Pentax power adapter K-AC64's spec?

What is Pentax power adapter K-AC64's spec?
I can not find it anywhere, even in Pentax manual... very disappointing....

So I found it by myself.
Power output is 4.5V DC with 1000mA or higher.
Camera owner can use any power adapter with above spec.
Do not have to buy Power adapter K-AC64...

Maybe they hid the spec to force people to buy the oem adapter

K-AC64's spec

Thanks for this info, was looking for it myself. One question. What about the polarity of the adaptor? Could it damage the camera if it was wrong? Without this info, I'm just gonna have to trial and error, but don't want to damage it.

Thanks.

Crikey! Don't 'trial and error' the polarity! You've got a 50% chance of toasting your camera.

Yeah, don't do that unless you want something to go "boom"
