    12v-24v Computer Quick Release Power Cable Kit M2-MTR-5-PWR

    Our new quick release power kit was just put on the store today.
    Feature: Takes unregulated power in and gives you regulated power out all from a single snap in cable.


    Scenario: After a clean install you can easily power your touch screen monitor with clean DC power by just connecting the barrel connector coming from your pc. No cutting into the regulated power source required.

    These could sell decent in the store I would think. I actually have one similar to this already I made it from parts I had here, for the same reason, not to have to open the case to pull the power ect. I put a female plug in the hole in the back of my CarPC case, and hot glued it from the inside. I did it this way as to not have a pig tail or wires dangling out the back of the CarPC when I move it around. I can just plug the male plug into the back of the case, and it locks in place.

    So am I understanding this correctly that this does NOT have any regulators? It's simply passing-on the regulated power from whatever PSU you install?

    There is no regulation or fuses which is why the cable is only 10$. You need to add fuses and regulation yourself.

    This is just a part to help make taking your device in and out of your vehicle easier.

    Is there a trick to getting 12V from the monitor power cable? After it wouldn't turn on my Lilliput 629, even though the Lilliput power cable works, I tested it with my multimeter. It registers -33v or -132v, depending on which way I put the negative/positive meter cables. (Maybe I'm lucky it didn't fry my brand new monitor?)

    I am pretty clueless at electrical things, but I do get a 12v reading for my Lilliput cable.

    Ah, duh. It is just a pass-through, so you have to plug in 2 power wires from the other side.

    When I try to run the monitor power from my M3 ATX power supply, it just shuts down the motherboard. I don't understand that, since I'm hardly using any wattage. But again I'm clueless with electricity.

    When I run the monitor power from a regular PC PSU, it works. Though I get a wavy screen, which may be because the voltage is slightly less than 12V (?). I'm curious to see how it will work when I plug it directly to my car's ignition line. It works fine with the AC wall power plug, and with the cigarette lighter plug.

    If the p4 connector is taken up on my motherboard, how could I go about making the monitor barrel plug connector still function? Splice into an extra molex connector?

    Fiberoptic,

    For clarity, you might want to edit the first post... it implies regulated power.
