K-1 power supply for UK

I would like to buy a power supply for my K1 mk 2. The only source in the EU seems to be this one but there is a slight discrepancy between the picture and the words. The picture shows a connector for the DC in port but the words refer to a "DC Coupler (to insert in the battery compartment)". I have emailed the company to ask which one is supplied but they don't reply. Has anyone here bought one from this source and if so did it come with the DC connector or the battery compartment coupler?

I think that's probably a classic example of Chinglish translation. The photos are quite clear...

The DC plug which connects to the camera is the same like the one which goes into the battery dummy for the K-70 and KP.

By the way, the one in your link isn't a genuine Pentax adapter. That's why it is cheaper than 60.

If you don't need a copy made by Pentax, better get the same model from germany - it's even 5 cheaper.

Maybe some day Ricoh will start selling it own AC power supplies again.

Maybe check the voltage and Hz as these vary between countries. Best not buy if the company doesn't answer your emails.
