The Bose Power Supply Series 2 is the power adapter that Bose uses for a number of its products, including the Bose Companion 2 speakers and the Bose SoundDock Series II. These power supplies include a cord and an adapter. The cord has a DC connection that connects into the Bose product on one end and an adapter with a standard plug that connects to the wall. If your Bose Power Supply Series 2 fails, is damaged or is misplaced, you’ll have to replace it. Fortunately, Bose sells replacements, and you also have a number of less expensive third-party options available on the market.

The model number for the series 2 adapter by Bose is PSM36W-208. This is the unit that ships with the SoundDock Series III, but it’ll work with most Bose products that use this type of connector. That includes the SoundDock Series II and Companion 2 mentioned earlier.

The third-party options are very effective and often available at one-third the price of the Bose model. Another advantage of these alternatives is that they’re usually longer than the default model. Consider the Power Supply Series 2 by T-Power, which is 6.6 feet long, which is more than twice as long.

Another interesting option is the charger for Bose products by PWR+. The connector on the end of this unit is designed to fit a wide range of Bose products, even beyond what the series 2 was originally designed for, and the PSU casing has been streamlined in order to make it easier to attach to crowded surge protectors.

Finally, another product worth considering is the adapter by UpBright. This is a certified product that comes with a one-year warranty and a number of additional protections, including OVP, OCP and SCP. Additionally, all adapters are thoroughly tested before being packaged.

A non-functional or missing Bose Power Supply Series isn’t the end of your fun. You can bring you Bose products back to life with an affordable and effective third-party power adapter.
