There is a small company that sells a really, really small power supply. it can do 50 or 100 V constant only, and is not able to regulate current (but has a 1 Amp fuse). The supply costs $45.00, which is sufficiently low that these could be purchased for students to use in a teaching lab.
The owner once posted here instructions how to construct a cheap agarose gel rig using pencils as electrodes.

Check out his other products, which are also very inexpensive.
P.S. I have run a mini-SDS-PAGE rig with this power supply. While the run was slower than I am used to, it went just fine. - DK
