This works great for a DC connector – 5.5 x 2.1mm CCTV DC Power Female Jack Connector (10-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
When used with SKU: 44708, you have a very solid connection that can handle up to 1A DC without heating up. Price is right!
Cons:
Not weather proof.
Other:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_connector is a good article if you want more information on this connector type. Even though this is a 2.1mm center pin, it MIGHT work with 2.5mm pin connectors too.
Bottomline:
Use it if you need 1A or less DC quick connectors and don't need weather proof or can rig these to be weather proof yourself. It seems that a lot of toys/gadgets that are battery powered come with these connectors on them, so the potential battery savings by making your own cables and power supplies is great.
