The cassette tape port is a .156" edge connector located on the back of the VIC-20, in between the user port and the serial bus.


This port is compatible with Commodore datasette cassette tape drives made for the PET series, the VIC-20, as well as the Commodore 64. It is sometimes used to supply power to devices attached to the serial bus such as the SD2IEC.
