3 pin waterproof connectors
« on: October 16, 2013, 05:05:06 PM »
I've searched every where and I can't seem to find 3 pin connectors from the us without spending a fortune. I know ray has them but the shipping is outrageous. I need to extend my ss and I don't wanna solder them and heat shrink.
Its a wonderful life.

They have four pin here. Just don't use the 4th pin.

But don't you have to solder and heat shrink connectors also.

Those look better than Ray's. Perhaps a heavier conductor, too. Always a plus.

Shipping is not as bad as you may think from China.

a 10ft 3 core extension cable from in the US $4.25 + Shipping

a 10ft 3 core extension cable from Ray Wu is $2.20 + Shipping

shipping from China will likely be $25 for the 1st Kg  + $5 /0.5kg and that is airfreight
shipping in the US is not cheap either for cables as they do have some weight.
