Outdoor enthusiasts rejoice! Adafruit now have standard 5.5/2.1mm DC power cable sets in a waterproof variety. These cable sets are ideal for projects that must weather the weather: dust, water, rain, snow, tornado (not volcano proof!). They are a little bulkier than normal DC jacks because of the o-ring and removable over-screw. The o-ring is what makes the waterproof seal, and the over-screw keeps the two halves connected solidly

Comes as a set of two cables - one plug and one jack. The total length of the connected cables is 16" (40cm). The wires are color coded - red is center, black is ring - to match the most common center-positive polarity.

Technical Details

  • Each half has a 7" long cable (not including the connector part)
  • 16" total length when plugged together
  • 5.5mm / 2.1mm 'standard' DC jack with coloring for center positive wiring
  • 0.68" (18mm) diameter at widest point
  • 0.172" (4.4mm) thick cable
  • 20 grams per set
  • IP67 rated
  • PVC Connector & Jacket

    Plugs are well made and look to be high quality. Thread on locking color are obviously not universal though. The thread on these plugs do not match the threads on the waterproof 5.5/2.1mm plugs (same style plug) that came on my bike light and battery pack. Will need to buy another set of these so I can replace/comminize the plugs on my lights. (Posted on 5/06/2017)
