I'm looking to find the name of this type of connector:

enter image description here

The picture above is from a power adapter I have and provides 10v (not that that matters). If you can't tell from the image, it's basically a rectangle connector with a semi-circle notch taken out of the top-middle so you can't get the polarity wrong.

The rectangle is 13mm x 7mm.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Can you measure the pitch spacing, the distance between the center of the holes ? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ The pitch spacing is 7mm. Also, the distance from the inside edge of one hole to the next is 5mm. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Best I could find is this connector with a 6.2mm pitch. Try get a more precise measurement and see if it is actually 6.2mm pitch instead of 7mm. You might have to break the safety pin though. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I don't have digital calipers but when remeasuring it turns out you're spot on, looks like it's between 6mm and 6.5mm. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I've been talking to someone on eBay and for their Tamiya connector, the pitch spacing is 5.9mm. So it might be a bit of a push to fit but I'll keep looking! Thanks again. \$\endgroup\$
