7.4 x 5.0mm MALE???

  • psilhan Monday, October 1, 2018 3:43 PM Reply

    Picture seems to show 7.4 x 5.0mm FEMALE, not male??? Is it 7.4 x 5.0mm with central pin male or female?

    LOL. This sounds like a job for @ozOzo.

    With Coaxial Connectors‎, the one with the pin in the centre is the male. The picture of SKU: 415510 shows the male on the left and, being larger than the one on the right, it will be 7.4*5.0mm and the female 4.8*1.7mm.

     


    G'day sheepish!

    In other words, the subtitle is correct. The URL is wrong:

    https://www.dx.com/p/7-4-x-5-0mm-female-to-4-8-x-1-7mm-male-dc-jack-plug-power-adapter-cable-for-hp-laptops-black-415510


    Because the URL shows the original listing info, this means DX has already corrected it - probably after ozOzo politely pointed out the original product listing was gender confused.

    Still not sure...


    The picture shows female 7.4*5.0mm on the left side, with the hole for the central pin. Subtitle says male. So it means there is wrong picture?


    This one I consider beeing 7.4*5.0mm FEMALE, which is same type as in this listing with cable.

    You are still confusing male and female. Look again at the diagram in my post above. I assure you it is correct. The end at the top right of that adaptor (the end with the yellow tip), is FEMALE.The end you see at bottom left with the hollow cylinder and the pin in the centre is MALE, therefore the title of SKU: 415510 is correct.


    The other adaptor you linked to (SKU: 339274) is wrong. The 7.4*5.0mm end is MALE, not female as stated in the title. DX management is no longer interested in correcting mistakes and apparently does not have enough staff to maintain the “Report Error” function as they once did, which is why I no longer bother to report this or any other of their multitude of mistakes.

    For (sku.339274), 7.4*5.0mm end is definitely FEMALE, so it has right description. Anyway, I have find different source, so solved for me. Thank you for your help!

    So you're saying these are both female to female? Which would make the URL and the subtitle both wrong?


    PS. And why didn't I get a notification for psilhan's post before ozOzo's last post above?

    Well thanks for your thanks @psilhan but our help is not very helpful unless we can convince you that you are wrong about which is male and which is female. I would suggest that you use a more reliable source of information to verify your claim that “sku.339274 Image), 7.4*5.0mm end is definitely FEMALE”... It is NOT!

    It is best explained in Wikipedia here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coaxial_power_connector  


        Plug (female)
    On the female plug, the outer body is metallic and cylindrical in shape, and comprises one of the two contacts. The second, inside contact is a hollow metallic cylinder constructed to accept insertion of the pin in the corresponding male connector. The inner and outer barrels are separated by an insulating layer. The outer contact is generally called the barrel, sleeve or ring, and the inner contact is called the tip.
        Receptacle (male)
    There is typically a single spring-loaded contact at the side of the male connector and a pin in the center corresponding to the intended female plug.


    @sheepish. I received no email notification for any of the above posts, only your original PM showed up at top of the Latest Posts page.

    Here's another view of the Dell connector in question.
