I can't seem to find any 12v adapters that use a compatible input jack as the turemetal tp240. There are tons of dell bricks with 8 pin connectors for pretty cheap on ebay... do people just use an 8 pin to 5.5.x 2.5 adapter or something? Any ideas where you can find something like that?
TO my knowledge, there are only two high power 12V AC adapters with a 5.5 DC jack :
- Professionally modded Dell DA-2 18A with 5.5 DC jack : 40 €
- ATS 300T-P120 24A : 110 € and minimum MOQ of 2 units.
The problem I have is finding 5.5 DC barrel connectors that can handle more than 10A.
Any suggestions welcome
Yep... We were discussing this issue yesterday on the Thin Mini-ITX thread. Max current rating 5.5 DC barrel connectors can handle is 11A.
I wonder why industrial companies design 24A DC adapters with 5.5 jack plugs then...
There are some experiments showing that those barrels can handle more but I'm not sure they would last in the long term...
