    One of the planes that I fly has both a LEMO jack and set of standard dual-GA jacks in the pilot position. None of my headsets have a LEMO plug, so I never use the LEMO jack. However, I got to thinking that maybe the LEMO jack could be a useful source of 12V electrical power.

    Does anyone have a Digikey/Mouser/Newark part number for a plug that will fit the LEMO jack?

    Isn't that power supply rated at a quarter amp?
    Not a very big wire.
    If you make it a '12 cig lighter' receptacle consider the power draw of most things that might get plugged into it.

    It's connected to a 1 amp breaker. Not sure what the connector is rated at, though (a Digikey/Mouser/Newark part number might help with that :)).

    Whatever I plug in will be well under 10W.
