WTB Sola 9600/12000/15000 charger coupler

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have one of these to sell?

It's the male end for the big video light chargers (24volt)

Despite repeated attempts at contacting L&M - no response.

Hi, my recent experience with Light&Motion is somewhat similar, they replied, but were unable to handle a really simple Sola problem.

About your connector, maybe 
Reef Photo & Video <support.team@reefphoto.com> attn Mr Kevn Palmer
or
Backscatter.com  might know how to get one.  

It should also be possible to 3D print the plug and improvise the electric connectors.  Digi-Key sells an large number of different connectors, (https://www.digikey.com/) they might be of help.

Joe: You can buy an adapter from L&M that will work with you lights using a USB-C charger

https://lightandmotion.com/products/usb-c-2l-charge-dongle?variant=35504734568598&gclid=Cj0KCQjwl_SHBhCQARIsAFIFRVXogt_3mvDND_7zHI_CwTACrO6QAmy71IrEigMVBfx_WrgSjM_kXIsaAqUiEALw_wcB

it's $49; we have a couple and they work well. I have tried to get that part only from L&M with no luck. I might have a spare plug somewhere but try the USB-C piece; it works well for our lights.

Bill, the plug configuration does not look right based on the photo of the dongle. Both contacts and the alignment post must be in a straight line for the 9600/15000; in the picture the alignment post is offset.

Thanks anyways.

Yeah, I see that. Do you know what voltage the lights charge at? The USB-C version puts out 15V. If that will work then just cut off the alignment post (I assume the other two posts have the right spacing).

If you want to try it let me know, I will send you a USB-C plug with the post removed. If it works then you can buy a new one if not just send it back.

If it really is 24 V then you would have to do some wiring. Alternatively I could send you a dongle with a pin removed, that is simple.
