2.1mm barrel to mini phone jack adaptor?

Post by flowtilla » Sat Apr 27, 2019 8:21 pm

Hi, I have many power cables that are 5.5mm (outside diameter) x 2.1mm (inside diameter), negative in the center on one side but little 1/8 inch phone style jacks on the other. Rather than buying more barrel to barrel power cables for my board can I just get some cheap female mini phone plug to 2.1mm barrel adapters that connect to a power supply. ( I couldn't be sure exactly what to buy hunting it down online ). I found this on Amazon but it is a bit steep and I'm not sure if it is right . https://www.amazon.com/3-5mm-Female-Soc ...

The item linked may work, however I cannot say it will give you the correct polarity at the barrel plug. Also, the adapter you linked looks to cost more than we charge for the correct cable with 2.1mm Barrel plugs on each end...

I hope that helps!
