This high quality, low cost memory expansion doubles your Commodore Amiga 500 computer's memory. Extra memory is essential for many games which require 1MB of RAM to work.
 
System RAM will be increased from the standard 0.5MB (512kb) to 1MB (1 megabyte).
 
Installation is straight forward process: simply slot the A500™ memory expansion into the trapdoor slot. The trapdoor bay is covered by a small plastic door underneath the Commodore Amiga 500 computer which can be easily levered open. There is no need to unscrew, open or disassemble your computer.
 
Memory expansion features Real Time Clock header to install optional Real Time Clock module: available installed at special price below or available separately here.
 
Features:
0.5MB RAM to boost total system memory to 1MB
Memory auto configures with no drivers required
Header for optional Real Time Clock module: available installed at special price
LK1 jumper on board: used for enabling 1MB Chip RAM modifications (Agnus 8372 or higher required).
Two-page colour manual included
 
Commodore Amiga 500 Plus users: we have produced a separate 1MB memory expansion available here (https://amigakit.amiga.store/product_info.php?products_id=502)

That is a really good price! And the option of a Non-Varta Real Time Clock is great! I would imagine power consumption is a tiny bit less than the original expansion, too.

Thanks, we have worked hard to reduce the price.

The design is using more modern components than the DIP RAM that is found on many older cards and some products still being sold as new from other resellers.

The clock module is easily removed/installed and is powered by a CR1220 mini coin cell battery.
