Re: CP3 Power Connector

You’ve got it right.  Just make a pigtail with the 5.5 x 2.1 DC plug on one end and PP on the other.  That’s what I’ve done.


They’re harder to find, but the “best” solution for CP3 power connectors are the threaded ones – such as the original that AP provided.  It took me awhile, but I found the threaded 5.5 x 2.1 DC connectors and made up my own adapter cable to PP.  the advantage to the threaded ones is that they don’t accidentally loosen or pull out.

Simple question here -- on the CP3 box I assume the 12V power accepts a 2.1x5.5 center positive 12 volt cable - correct? I would like to just use a Powerpole cable I have here vs the cig plug one.
