The CCR-1 & CCR-2 used the "standard" figure-8 connector for 110 AC. They
also ran on 4 "C" sized primary cells. However, the battery option did not
work reliably for CoCo use.
CCR-3 used a 6 volt DC plug in or 4 "AA" sized batteries. Again battery
power was unreliable for CoCo use.
There may also have been a CCR model. If so, I suspect it was the same as
the CCR 1/2 which were identical, outside of case color.
