Hi all,

I've been struggling to find a simple power solution for my 2m/70cm Electro, which I thought would be easy to find.  For my 11m kit I use 50A cable with robust Anderson connectors, however that's a bit much to replicate for the Electro, which might possibly draw 10A maximum if I ever become fully qualified!  In the meantime, I need to be able to connect the set to either a cigarette lighter socket when mobile or portable, as well as my 10A power supply at home, which has bare wire connectors.  As such, I simply cut the factory supplied cigarette connector off the radio, so I'm now looking for a proper plug/unplug 10A DC connector which I can solder onto all my bits of wires.....  I've tried the usual motor centers, but they don't seem to offer anything which is designed for easy plugging/unplugging, if you know what I mean?

Cheers

Simon.

Cheers Jeff,

Got straight on to Farnells and ordered some. They arrived today and are exactly what I need.

Thanks again,


Simon.
