Hello,

I'm having difficulty sourcing barrel connector sockets rated at >5A,
which is bizarre as numerous reputable suppliers sell 12V/10A desktop
PSUs that terminate in a 5.5mm OD / 2.5mm ID barrel plug. Yet, no
matter how much searching I do I can only seem to turn up 2.5A rated
sockets and, at a push, 5A rated.

Grateful for any suggestions or insights anyone can offer here...

Cheers,

Andrew
