Small power plug with fixation?

Post by roman_f » Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:06 am

please recommend me a good and small power plug with fixation
i'd love to change on on my x0xb0x, the original was very bad

i've resoldered it to usb-port (and changed the jack going from wall-adapter), but i think this is not the best idea :)

Maybe a DIN connector with screw plug like that one: Image
Or is that too big for your x-box?

These are like Modcan chassis power connectors (the 3pin)
These connectors are generically identified as microphone connectors
Nice stout pins, good locking ring, easy to mount.
