The Car Adaptor (カーアダプタ) is a accessory for the Sega Game Gear made by Sega. It power the systems by being plugged into a car's cigarette lighter, saving on batteries and being useful on long road trips. This adapter can also be used for the Sega Nomad which uses the same A/C port as Game Gear, along with the Sega Mega Jet, where it was bundled with the Alpine branded version.
