  • Coming Soon - "MacPac" Mac mini power cable for P1900

    EDIT: Buy now at: http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...roducts_id=239

    Guys, **updated info 5/15/06 **

    FINALLY! Soon we will be formally announcing the "MacPac" power cable assembly, but I wanted to give you guys an early peek. To answer your four obvious questions: 1) about 4 weeks from now (end of May), 2) $24.95, 3) the MacPac is a cable "kit" that includes the power button Y-cable (so you don't need to buy both), and 4)works with P1900 and Mac mini (not yet Intel mini, although if you are good with a soldering iron, you can mod the P1900 to work with the MacIntel. The mod is posted below),

    Sorry it took us so long (lot's of custom work and corporate OK's involved). And sorry to those of you who had to cut the cable (But look on the bright side... you've had the benefit of using your CarMini since you took the plunge!).

    Anyway, hope this helps those of you who are nervous about the power wiring.

    Enjoy!

    Here is the mod for using the MacPac power cable with the MacIntel mini. Be careful with your soldering iron!

                Great job, Mike. Sounds like it was a bear to line up all of the suppliers and get permission to sell this thing.

                  This is awesome news! Pretty please write-up the DIY for the part in BOLD though. I've just attained an awesome Mac Mini Intel (from a very generous good friend) and have the mod-bug by my side again!

                          Great to see the cable available, it was the one thing putting us off getting the P1900 for our demo intel Mac Mini as we tend to move the mini in and out of the vehicle all the time for transferring large files and even as a mac dealer a new power supply is still expensive! We will be putting a power supply and cable on order asap when available.

                              Wholly moley that is some small soldering. Is there any reason why we couldnt solder directly to the pins that lead to the circuit board from the back of the connector?? Also what wattage pen and solder do you recommend for something that tiny?

                              PS: Any GA locals who can solder that small? I through a few bux your way if you can help a the car pc meet this Saturday
