Difference K-AC167 vs K-AC132

Hello

I own 2 pcs K-1. I also have 1 pcs of K-AC132

When I want to upgrade to the K-1ii is it then possible to use the K-AC132 on the new K-1ii, or is the Connector & Power different? I can't find any technical specification about this Accessoires

There is no physical difference between the K-1 and K-1 II, so you can use your existing adapter.

According to our DB, the 167 is for the KP, but in all likelihood it is just an updated model designation for the same adapter.

The UK Ricoh store lists:

AC ADAPTER KIT K-AC168E compatible with PENTAX K-70 and PENTAX KP.

Not sure why the K1 manual lists the AC132 and the K1ii lists the AC167 - maybe the 'Accelerator' draws noticeably more power and requires a chunkier PSU. If anyone has either, posting the power rating would be illuminating.

The K-1 and K-1ii use the same battery so it is unlikely the power output specifications on the AC adapter have changed. Most of the re-designations of the AC adapters has to do with the certifications for the various regulatory agencies of the countries that import the adapter. Some had to do with changes required by those agencies such as lead and PCB levels.

The output specifications for the AC50 for my K10D is 8.3vDC @ 2amps. I've been told this adapter works fine with the K-1.

Edit: It looks like the 167 uses the same Hirose plug as all the other "flagship" bodies. It is highly unlikely that Ricoh would use the same plug with different output specifications. After all the K-AC10 for the K100D uses a round coax plug for 6.5vDC. Rectangular plug on the 167 shown in the links below:
