12V PCB connector


I'm designing a PCB in Eagle for a timelapse and dolly controller. I'm powering my stepper motor driver from a 12V SLA battery, but what is the best/easiest connector for the PCB? Should I go for a DC barrel power jack? Or a Wago connector?....

Cheers, Michael

In what post do you want the answers? Multi posting doesn't help with clarity, for you and for people searching.



Sorry, this post would be great. I will only post under one topic from now.

Cool. Could you delete or lock the other topics with the same question? And don't do it gain. ;)


Done. Any ideas on my original question?..

Nope, sorry. But without cross posting you have a much bigger chance somebody will actually share his ideas.

Good luck,


DC barrel sockets are the most common. I don't like them but you can't argue with success :)

Watch out for the two different sizes, 2.1 and 2.5, 2.1 centre pin might be the most common.

Also it will depend on the current required.


Great, thanks a lot for the reply! That's what I was thinking of going with, i'll look into it more!
