What dc screw on plugs do you use?

Post by destro23 » Jun 23 2019 6:23am

E-outstanding 5-Pack DC-099 5.5 mm x 2.1mm 30V 10A DC Power Jack Socket,Threaded Female Panel Mount Connector Adapter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C46XMPT/re ... dDb3ZCF4H0

Something like this?

And which is positive or negative? How do I wire it? Positive in the center? Do I get 10a rating female? Do you guys use shrink wrap?

Also which 5.5x2.1 plug and 5.5x2.5? Is one better then the other because pin is thicker?

Thanks for dealing all the questions

Generally they're wired center positive. Match them by pin diameter to ensure a solid connection, so 2.1mm with 2.1mm.
