On Off switch?

Postby rayjai » Fri Jan 29, 2016 12:05 am

Hi,

do you guys think this will fit the M3D? Would something like this be safe to use? I'm afraid I will stress out the power plug.

It should be safe considering the Micro only uses around 20 watts. I'm not sure on the size though, mine is printing right now, otherwise I would check the size of the plug for you. I'll try and get around to checking it tomorrow and let you know if I can remember. I am using a power switch as well, but my setup consists of these:

http://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Outlet ... e+3+outlet

The power strip sits on the shelf the printer is on, the switch is in the bottom outlet of the strip, and I have a tablet base (the name for the 'base' escapes me at the moment) plugged up as well. The strip has it's own switch, but at least this way I can turn off power to the printer separately and still use the tablet base.

... eh, I might gets some pics of the setup later... Hopefully this helped somewhat. Again, I'll try and check the plug size tomorrow when the print is finished; your idea would be the cheaper way to go if they make one with the right size plugs...

Alright, I checked this morning and the plug dimensions are 2.5mm x 5.5mm, so the one you picked should fit. The only problem I see is that it will take a while to get to you since it's from china.
