Wiper Motor Power Supplies and Connectors

1161 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Ghost Ninja
Hello all, I need to order a new power supply and I came across at least two different sizes. Fright Props lists their connectors at 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm and many listed on Ebay and elsewhere are listed as 5.5 mm x 2.5 mm.

So my question is will they work interchangeably? I suppose I could cut it off and attach my own female end to match.

Second question, on Ebay I see a lot of low price power supplies that seem to be designed for printers or monitors, but they are 12v 5a. Would they work on wiper motor prop?

Thanks in advance.

slicing off the existing adapter plug and attaching your own isn't the greatest of ideas. Those plugs are polarized, meaning the current always flows one particular way. The new plus you attached has to be connected the same way, or you'll likely end up frying whatever you plug it into.
