    It would be nice to have a handful extra of the green plastic output connectors. Any cheap source in the states to purchase some extra connectors for the P12? --Greg--

    A picture of some sort of the connectors you are looking for would be great. :)

    The connectors that Ed uses are a 3.5mm pitch type. Be aware that not all brands are interchangeable however. The ones I use are ever so slightly different to Ed's and don't fit well. I think the ones AAH used on his boards are slightly different too.

    There are slight differences between the j1sys and sandevices ones too - can't remember which way around, but one will fit in the other, but not vice-versa.

    You can get them from Ed, the price is not much at all.

    I got a 'care kit' from Ed that included the phoenix plugs and fuses, I cannot remember how much it cost but it was relatively cheap and they were more guaranteed to work compared to me going to mouser directly.

    Just for the record, RS Components stock number 707-5045 will not fit.
