Hello friends..

Watch the video to see how it works in action here:

Step 1: How It's Done..

After designing the jack, and 3D printing it, put a drop of a glue under the magnet, then insert the copper sheet and bend it in both ways as you see in the pictures. drill a hole where the screw should go (in the copper sheet) Use metal M3 screws to fix the wires that you will connect..

This design is for a 1mm thickness/5mm diameter magnet.

If you want my STL file of the design, just drop me a comment.

Happy connecting!

<p>As you see in the video, you can choose if you want it to attract in both ways or only one way like mine..</p>
<p>That's awesome man, excelent ideea.</p><p>I have a car camera and i'm afraid to keep plugging on and off the power connector as it will eventually tear.</p><p>I tried the 5 pin usb cable you are showing in the video, but it cannot get enough power to the device (connecting to a smartphone and using ampere it gives max 500 mah).</p><p>This should ensure enough juice for the camera. </p><p>How can i get my hands on 1 or 2 plugs?</p><p>Thank you :) </p>
<p>Thank you! Glad you liked it :)</p><p>Actually I have the 5 pin usb magnetic jack, and it gives more than 500 mah, maybe you just didn't get lucky with that one.. What I showed in the video is the built in Mac charging cable that comes with all Macbooks.</p><p>Send me a message Where do you live so we can communicate and see how to fix this :) </p>
<p>This is the same principle, but a bit more &quot;vintage&quot;, than the power connector of Macbooks.</p>
<p>Actually they use moving needles, and one magnet side with another metal side.. I like my design more (not because I made it) but because it has no moving parts with the ability to make it goes only one direction or both :) </p><p>Hope you liked it :)</p>
<p>Hi Rajaa,</p><p>This is so F'in brilliant for easy hook up and would be good for quick disconnect power to breadboards and the like as well - extremely nice!</p><p>Gotta find a way to make something like this without a 3D-printer :)</p><p>Talk to you later.</p>
<p>Hi nabo!</p><p>I'm glad you like it! exactly, it's extremely useful in these cases.. </p><p>If you want, I can make a few of them and send them to you with magnets by post.. Just let me know if so :)</p>
