Hello all,
Any one have a good suggestion for what power connector to use in a external brick powerd egpu like the Node Lite?  The Node Lite has a 10A rated Barrel connector which is not enough.  I would ideally like something with a face size that would fit in the carrier sheet metal gap so ~1cm x 1cm.  Since the interior is going to be re wired anyway I am not too concerned about pcb mount...
