  • Where to get DC power plug for PW200-V?

    I just put my bits together which includes the PW200-V. It has a female power socket. Where can I get a suitable male power plug to use with it. I can't do much testing when I'm using both hands to hold power wires in place

    jameco.com, digikey.com... If you don't want to order it, Radio Shack #274-1565 may work. You could try checking the local electronics repair shops too.

    Other than that, the electronics junk pile you may have lying around

      I don't have many DC psu's lying around as junk

      I should have specified - I was thinking shops rather than Internet as I want to have it tomorrow . I'll give Radio Shack a go - any other suggestions of shops?

        274-1565 is the female part. I need the male part but a quick search shows they have many subtly differently sized DC plugs to choose from. But I'm clearly going to have the take the PW200-V with me since I can't measure it accurately enough given the small differences in potential plug sizes.

          You want the 2.5mm male plug.

          Kind regards,

            Yep, the 5.5/2.5mm one was the one I needed. It even came in 2-count packs so I may get some of the female sockets and use that to hook in other 12V devices to the output of my regulator.
