About this product

Product overview

  • 2.5mm jack plug with metal body

A 2.5mm stereo jack plug with screened metal barrel and coiled spring cable relief sleeve.


Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good piece of kit I soldered the wires on to the plug, and when I tested it the sleeve and centre contact were shorted together. After removing it there were no obvious signs of heat damage to the plug, but it definitely now has an 'internal' short. Maybe I used too much heat, I thought? I bought another plug and soldered very quickly and carefully with my smallest iron - exactly the same result with the sleeve and centre shorted together. I'm not going to try another!

stereo plugs require 3 core cable.XR20 would be suitable but this also depends on what you put on the other end.
