CLASSIFIED Product Services has made its Spectrum flexible edge connector generally available. It is two Spectrum-style connectors joined by a piece of ribbon cable so that when you fit an add-on it will not suffer the same effect as the infamous ZX-81 RAM pack wobble.

The basic extender is supplied in either 2in. or 6in. lengths with a female connector at either end, into which slots a double-sided male connector. CPS also supplies an extender with an additional connector in the middle so that two dead-ended add-ons can be used at the same time, for example, printer and joystick interfaces.

At £8.50 for the two-way and £12.50 for the three-way extender, extra connectors can be added to order for £3 each. They will provide an invaluable addition for Spectrum users. Classified Product Services Ltd is at Shire Hall, The Sands, Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria CA16 6XN. Tel: 0930-52204.
