    quick release power to computer?

    i currently am about to install my carputer into the car, but ive run into a little snag.

    Is there a way i can hook up the power and ignition wires to my opus without hardwiring them in, so i can easily remove the computer if i have a problem or need to upgrade later on?

    i dont really want to sodder the connections to the opus.

    I don't know about the 90W version, but the 150W comes with a power cord from the PSU to the another cable that's meant to connect with another one. The problem is that it's too short, but you can make it longer. I'll post a picture of mine later...

    I have an 150W version. It came in a shuttle case, but i removed it from it so it could fit in a custom case i made. But the problem is that he sides of the aluminum case are real flimsy (bend easily), so when i try to pull out htat connector it came with it ends up bending the case rather than unplugging.
