Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this item. This page is for reference only.

Description: One of our retired products used an 8-pin Male Conxall connector. When the connector was not in use for data communication, it was used to charge the battery of the product. So rather then pitch our custom power adapters in the dumpster out back we have posted them as a product.

They are fully functional AC to DC converters that output 5V at 1A. The input can be 100 to 240 Vac at 50/60Hz.

Most likely you have no use for one of these unique powers supplies, but feel free to hack it apart, cut the end off and make something useful for yourself. Cut the end off and connect the loose wires to a bread board to make a 5v bread board power supply.

  • I would love to see the inside of one of these. Perhaps also get the physical dimensions of the circuit board inside…?

  • are they regulated?

    • I’d like to know this as well. I’m guessing they’re probably not, though.

  • Sorry these didn’t work out. I wonder– what are the dimensions of the plug-in block itself? I could use a few but need to know their dimensions (and, ideally, the prong locations). Thanks!

  • Shame these have to go… I have one of the “retired products” that these are for sitting right in front of me.

  • I have a feeling that these will probably work on low-to-medium voltage DC input (24VDC on up) to get that 5V output too. They might not output the full rated current at the lower DC input voltages, however, and bypassing the bridge rectifier on the input would both lower the DC input voltage required to run it as well as increase the power you can draw from it on DC (since only half the diodes in the bridge would be passing power).
    They look exactly like a couple of Samsung phone chargers I’ve tested to work on my 36V SLA e-bike motor pack, except for the custom connector, and have the same input specs. There’s some info about what I did at my bike blog, http://electricle.blogspot.com/2009/11/diy-cfl-hl-wdc-dc-inverter.html
