Power cable extension/adapter for XU4?

Post by kerlimeke75 »

My ODROID XU4 is going to be enclosed in a much larger box.

I need a cable or adapter that would allow me to flush mount the power port to the box itself apart from the ODROID (does that make sense?)

Thank you!Tweakbox Appvalley https://vlc.onl

Hi!
Sure, you can make it yourself.
I assume you'd like to have a barrel jack socket on the side of your "larger box" so you could still use official power supply.
What you're after is "panel mount" DC jack, stuff like that: https://pl.mouser.com/Connectors/Power- ... 12Z1z0yqrw

Don't forget to use at least AWG-18 grade DC cables to minimize voltage drops.

Just to make it clear: That means AWG-18 or less. :) Smaller numbers mean thicker cables.

But personally I'd go with AWG-22, if the cable will be short, like 10cm long.
