  • Post in thread: What's the DC connector on Jackery 500?

    I've bought a couple of Lenovo cables for power input, and attached APP connectors to them. As mentioned earlier that works perfectly. For power out I'm waiting for some GoalZero connectors. Others have already confirmed that they work, so I'll only update here if I find a problem with them. So...

    Awesome, thank you! I have ordered a couple of 6mm ones for the output, hopefully they'll fit. And I believe I can get hold of some old Lenovo chargers I can butcher.

    I don't have it yet, which makes this harder. And I want to order connectors now to not waste time. Some more photos at https://www.jackery.com/products/explorer-500w-portable-power-station They look like they're the same, just opposite male/femaleness (makes sense). I've had a couple of back...

    In addition to the DC out car adapter port, there's also two other DC output ports, and one DC input port. What's the name of these, and where can I buy some? I want to make some cables, e.g. Anderson Powerpole adapters, but I need to know what they are first.

    Great! Is "8mm" and "6mm" all I need? What about the inner pin diameter size?

    I ordered some of these, and just soldered them up. They seem to only *almost* fit. They slide in perfectly, but I think the inner pin is just barely to narrow. If I prod the outside of the connector I lose voltage. Did you test actually connecting it up?

    Ah yes, you're right. I wiggled it around a bit more now, and it's more consistent with a slightly too short center pin, as opposed to a slightly too thin one. Good call.

    Oh wow, $5? Yeah I'd do that. Where are you seeing those prices? On GoalZero I see no prices at all (probably because they don't ship outside the US). And their alleged UK supplier doesn't seem to carry any of their products. And prices on eBay are more like £20-£30 each.

    Hooray! Thanks everyone!

    Yeah some sort of barrel connector, and I want both sides. Jackery just replied saying "DC port […] size is 8mm". I've tried on amazon, ebay, digikey, and others, to find either male or female by looking for barrel connector 8mm, but not finding anything. I also don't know what the pin diameter...

    You don't think they both are, just male/female? Hmm… hard to tell.

    Thank you! These measurements will really help in my search!
