Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, might it be for a VTech i5871?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
that is correct.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
This system is more than 8 yrs old.
Expert:  Louie replied 11 months ago.

To my understanding, there were two (2) adapters that came with this model; a base power adapter and the second handset dock charger adapter.

Which of the 2 is needed please?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It would be the base power adapter model #sx8-70-1100-us
Expert:  Louie replied 11 months ago.

Unfortunately, it would appear that the VTECH SX8-70-1100-US is no longer readily available.

Is the old base power adapter even if defective still available?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I still have it. The wiring is frayed right at the connecting adapter base.
Expert:  Louie replied 11 months ago.

Bear with me; post back with clear pictures of the base power adapter. Please click HERE.

A hopeful workaround is to modify a power supply / AC adapter for another product.
