Does anyone have some instructions for adding the secondary power input? I've sourced the connectors, but can't find any details on the soldering points for the PCB.


 


Cheers,

Hmm, not so sure about this mod personally.  Sure, stops the cable pulling out.   But looking at it from another angle; what if you snag the cable in the dark with your foot?  At least with the original cable it'll just pull out.  With these sorts of mods there's the possibility of damage I'd think?

If there's any cables at floor level or loose for anyone to catch on, I've not set up properly :) Cable management is the key!

Hmmm... didn't realise this was a mod - thought it was factory installed - that's the same plate I have on mine. Musta got lucky.

 

Lucky you :) No the secondary screw fit connector is definitely not stock
