  • Cables with ring-tongues are fitted with M8 Ring Tongues (fit over M6 and M8 connector posts)
  • 2.1mm Jacks have over-long heat-shrink sleeving applied for additional protection against dew and damp
  • Every lead individually tested for electrical continuity, shorts and power load during manufacture. 

Please check your product's manual for use and suitability. 

Please note: Cables ending in ring-tongues are unfused, please ensure your PSU has a suitable fuse or circuit breaker to protect your mounts electronics. We accept no responsibility for equipment damaged as a result of using an incorrect cable, incorrect power orientation or connection without a suitable fuse.

Switchcraft 'Z series' doesn't always make a secure connection, depending on your device.

Couldn't get a secure connection with this lead to my AsiAir Plus or Pegasus Power Box advance, compared to cheaper leads that do. A little bit of applied pressure and the power is lost. Lead looks high quality otherwise.

Quality cable, Im using it to power an ASI air plus. Had problems with cheaper cables, power failures and voltage drop.
This cable has cured my problems thank you.

Solid product

Superbly made cable. A real step up from most cables. Top notch product and of course the usual top notch service from FLO. Just an aside (and it has nothing to do with FLO) - thanks to Brexit the charges to Germany were half as much as a couple of cables and a bhatinov mask..... My own fault for not buying in the UK, but highly annoying.

Not fit for purpose
Tuesday, 14 December 2021  | 

The cable feels very well made, and doesnít tangle, but I donít think itís fit for purpose.

Itís the only 5.5x2.1mm dc cable Iíve seen that actually has a 3.5mm internal diameter until about halfway down the connector (doesnít look like the picture!). This, I assume, is the cause of the issues I was having with the cable - that in certain positions it doesnít provide power.

I assumed that the cable was faulty so returned it for a replacement. However, I was told that this was how it should be (connector was the same as the other cables) and was refunded.

As I said, the cable feels well made but if it doesnít provide power properly then itís pointless. Instead I bought a £7 cable elsewhere which does what itís supposed to - provide power reliably!


Response:

We are using the latest Switchcraft 'Z' series connectors which have a different design to ensure the negative connection is made first for improved safey and reliability. We are using these in numerous setups and have tested them on many sockets with zero issues including ASIair, Sky-Watcher mounts and other common astronomy uses so I am not sure this is the cause of the issues you were having - perhaps let us know exactly what you were trying to power and we can investigate.

A good addition to the kit

Great service yet again

Money well spent

There is no comparison between these and the cheap cables that come with the mount. Easy to coil, snug fittings, well made and resilient. Expensive, yes but definitely worth it. As always FLOs service was second to none

Great quality

Well worth the money, the cable remains flexible on the coldest nights. A must have item.
