Not Good

By Brian

from Chicago, IL

Comments about RadioShack 2.5mm Inline Plug DC Power Connector (2-Pack):

I had one of these laying around and finally found a use for it. It would not work and I discovered it had an intermittent connection between the solder tab and the tip. OK, I just purchased a brand new one and wouldn't you know, it has the same exact problem. I am not some hack, I am in the electronics business with the proper credentials. Sorry RS but this one is no good!

        Comments about RadioShack 2.5mm Inline Plug DC Power Connector (2-Pack):

        I'm a bit confused by the low ratings here. I've used these professionally for some time with never a problem. They are compatible with 24AWG wire, and although I can see how too much heat would damage the plastic insulation, I've had good success soldering wires to these. I use a temperature controlled iron at about 600F . . . maybe a little flux and pre-tinning the leads will make the connection quicker? I didn't need these step though.

            Comments about RadioShack 2.5mm Inline Plug DC Power Connector (2-Pack):

            This part has a serious problem: The plastic insulating the sleeve from the tip has a lower melting point than does solder. This leads to bad or intermittent connections. (I'd hate to try a lead-free solder, as it would be worse.) This is NOT a new problem with this Radio Shack part -- I first ran into it in the late 1960s. I have more than 40 years of electronics experience, so I know what I'm talking about. Strongly recommend using any other vendor for this part.

            Comments about RadioShack 2.5mm Inline Plug DC Power Connector (2-Pack):

            I have tried to use these in the somple application of transferring a signal from a wrist strap cord to an ESD monitor. I have found that, even though I solder both connections to the single wire from the monior plug, there is an intermittent open in the base and a complete open in the tip connector. Product does not work.

                  The quality of this product is incedibly poor. I tried 6 plugs before I found one with a reliable connection between the solder pins and the actual plug contacts
