    Just a very simple question I hope.
    I'm trying to replace a 3.5mm DC power socket on a rechargeable torch.
    Every single dimension agrees completely with this:

    http://www.zirui.net/power-socket/DC-003.html

    apart from the pin diameter.

    Having said that, the drawing shown on the attachment shows in the table Ø1 and Ø1.3

    Does that suggest a stepped pin, rather than two versions of the same component?

    The centre pin which snapped off my socket measures Ø1mm exactly.

    Another quite similar component

    http://www.vr-elec.com/product/plan_img/DC022-PA66.pdf

    also has some ambiguity regarding the centre pin size.

    And this one specifically says Ø1.3mm

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Technic-T...al_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item3a7bcb39a9

    Can anyone throw any light on their numbering convention and the actual centre pin diameter?

    Thanks

    There are several sizes of barrel diameters and pin sizes for this type of connector.
    They're all pretty common.
    Just find the one that fits your application.

    The problem is I don't want to order the parts just to determine if they fit or not.
    I prefer to know before ordering, especially if there is a minimum order of 10 parts.

    The attachment below, is also somewhat ambiguous. The only body that suits a mating plug of Ø1.1 is a 201, but mine is definitely a 211/212/215 type body, and the mating plug I have is definitely a Ø1.1 bore
