L46AY 1.7 4 9.5

I don't understand this listing. The photo shows many plugs. Do I get all these or do I need to choose one? If so how? The plug I have is 2.44mm barrel the shaft is 10mm. It looks just like the one in the image with the yellow tip.

Asked by: graeme
This listing is for a single solder on type plug Power plugs are determined by 4 separate specifications Inner diameter/ Outer Diameter / Shaft Length / Polarity The plug you will receive will have the following properties Barrel Inside Diameter = 1.7 mm Barrel Outside Diameter = 4 mm Barrel Length = 9.5 mm How you connect it will determine the polarity.

Do you have a socket to match L46AY?

Asked by: John
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative

Does it matter which terminal I solder the wires too.  I have a red and black wire. 

Asked by: Jt80
Yes, depending which way you wire it you would make the plug either centre positive or centre negative. so you would need to check which you need.
