I thought my 16 has a COAX power connector, but I can't check at 
present, so maybe it uses the same conenctor.  I know the 116 uses the 
COAX connector.

I do own some old VIC-20s with a 2 prong connector that looks similar to 
this:

It delivered 9VAC (or so) to the VIC, which internally created the 5VDC, 
as seen in the Rev E board schematic (page 3)
