I want to include a female power connector in my design. The problem is that I do not know how to find the specific connector.

This is the male counterpart that goes into the connector.

And this is the connector that I want to incorporate:

I am not interested in exactly the same connector, as I guess there would be similar connectors available - I just don't know how to search for them.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, it was from that circuit! Unfortunately, i do not have a Vernier caliper ready.... I can provide this info in about 12 hours. Thanks! \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 7, 2022 at 21:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ How similar does the connector have to be? Pure friction-lock connectors are difficult to come as bare parts. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Similar enough so that male cables like the ones in the first photo i posted enter and stay there.... \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 7, 2022 at 21:42

    \$\begingroup\$ If it's a power connector, I strongly recommend getting the exact match instead of a "similar" one. My guess is it's a proprietary design, so the best option would to lop it off and replace with a design that you can source both halves of. \$\endgroup\$

My Identiconn connector identification tool identified that as a Higo L218A circular connector.
