NEW PRODUCT – Waterproof DC Power Cable Set – 5.5/2.1mm
NEW PRODUCT – Waterproof DC Power Cable Set – 5.5/2.1mm. Outdoor enthusiasts rejoice! We now have standard 5.5/2.1mm DC power cable sets in a waterproof variety. These cable sets are ideal for projects that must weather the weather: dust, water, rain, snow, tornado (not volcano proof!). They are a little bulkier than normal DC jacks because of the o-ring and removable over-screw. The o-ring is what makes the waterproof seal, and the over-screw keeps the two halves connected solidly
Comes as a set of two cables – one plug and one jack. The total length of the connected cables is 16″ (40cm). The wires are color coded – red is center, black is ring – to match the most common center-positive polarity.
Each half has a 7″ long cable (not including the connector part)
16″ total length when plugged together
5.5mm / 2.1mm ‘standard’ DC jack with coloring for center positive wiring

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
