Will a xbox one power supply work on xbox 360 slim

I bought a xbox 360 slim from a guy. He showed that it worked, but I bought it withought the power supply. A power supply from a xbox one looks like the same. Will a xbox one power supply work on a xbox slim. They both have the 2 large pins for the plug and look the same, but I thought I would ask before i tried it.

Had same problem with Xbox one power brick. Looked on you tube and found that Xbox 360 power brick will work with Xbox one. The ends are completely different, had to cut off ends and use end from Xbox one on Xbox 360 power brick. Wires are a little different, had to wire the following way:

All yellows are marretted together

All black from 360 and blacks and 1 grey from Xbox one end are marretted together

Blues marretted together

Reds marretted together

Works awesome, saved money from buying new brick

@emmasdad no. They are not compatible. Try it only if you do not like your Xbox:-)

I just tried to put the power supply from my XBox One into my XBox 360 Slim (without it plugged in and drained for safety) and it won't even fit into the 360.

Worked for me. The PSU only outputs what your system needs as the One uses about 18 amps while the 360 used about 11 so it is more than capable of powering the 360. Just like how you buy a higher wattage PSU for your gaming computer.

My power adapter pooped out last month for my xbox one. Just found and used my old 203 watt xbox 360 power adapter. Opened case and resoldered the wires color for color. (TOOK LITERALLY 5 MIN.)amps are 16.5, 47-63hz. Exact same as the xbox one. Guess watt? No sparks!!!! Running a kinect and external hard drive. That extra 3 watts actually makes my xbox one run better. I have noticed a decrease in lag by a long shot on a lot of games. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it but it is working faster than ever. No overheating. I have my cable tv thru my xbox so it is on for 16+ hours a day. I'm at 5 weeks and no problems. I also saved myself 50 bucks and recycled what would have been tossed at some point.

  • All you uneducated idiots posting USELESS INFO do your *******,* research before you go misleading and misinforming people. Also your the ones that look like ########## now. Hope this saves someone else a few bucks!

***Note-only use the 203 watt origin xbox 360 brick as it matches the xbox ones needs. Please make sure to check and double check.

  • also don't be an idiot obviously make sure everything has been unplugged for at least an hour before you play with any of the power adapters to avoid shock.
