How about XLR plugs? I've seen 'em used, and they work very well. They're
usually used in pro audio equipment, (often seen on microphones, for
example) and usually have 3 pins.(polarised) The current rating is usually
3A, but there are some that go much higher. They also come in locking and
non-locking versions. Of course, it means that you have to re-wire the
I certainly wouldn't use British power sockets; some of 'em are really cheap
& nasty, and not really designed for DC.

Ah. That's right. I knew it was something weird.

But at least our power supply is fairly reliable and only one voltage with a
colour code that most people can understand
