You guys want to buy a mac mini intel power supply Heck Ill even trade my mini power supply for one of these cables.
We've posted some pics of the mod HEREPretty please write-up the DIY for the part in BOLD though.
Understatement of 2006...Sounds like it was a bear to line up all of the suppliers and get permission to sell this thing.
What would you like?Great... What's next ;-)
Send an email to MP3Car.com.Where can I preorder ?
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?Originally Posted by MikeH
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
Any idea when you'll make a Mac Pac for the Mac Intel Mini?
It's not so bad. I'm sure you have some sacrifical circuit board you can practice with. Your best bet is to get a tiny amount of solder on each lead of the resistor, then hold it on right spot and apply heat until the solder melts. The tricky part is holding it still until the solder sets again. A good set of clamps is way better than a shakey handOriginally Posted by skippy911
Most people would tell you to use a 15watt iron for something like that. I can't get solder to melt with those though. I use a 30watt all the time on stuff that small, you just A) have to have a fine tip for it and B) don't hold it there too long as you can over heat your components (or so i'm told, never done it myself).
In regard to attaching to the leads for the plug. If you look at it, the iSense lead is in the lower row of pins (2nd in from the right IIRC). Getting it attached without shorting out to the hot pin next to it would be tough (can be done, but i'd rather do as Mike's pics show). Not to mention that getting your iron in there is going to be fun too.
When can we expect this available for purchase??
Tha MacPac is compatible with the Mac Intel mini. It's the P1900 that requires a mod.Any idea when you'll make a Mac Pac for the Mac Intel Mini?
When can we expect this available for purchase??1) about 4 weeks from now (end of May),
