I have just installed my BeeLink SEI8 PC on my telescope mount.  I want to be able to bring the PC into the house at times so I want a second power supply to use in the house. I bought this: https://www.amazon.c...e?ie=UTF8&psc=1  but with all the supplied plugs, none of them fit the BeeLink PC.  Can someone point me to a power supply that would work with the BeeLink?, or what is the correct power plug size for the BeeLink?

It is supposed to be a 5.5x2.5mm power jack. The PSU kit you purchased is supposed to have a 5.5x2.5mm plug.

 

Sometimes the plug, if spring loaded, can feel a little snug. You can measure them with calipers to convince yourself you do or do not have the right parts, but it looks like you should.

Thanks for that info.  I'll again go through the plugs I got with the adapter. I do have MM calipers that I will also check ...

Ok, I found the correct adapter.  What is funny is, its the adapter that is the primary (the one it comes with wired/attached) to the AC/DC convertor. Did not need any of the 14 additional plugs it comes with.
