800 OLPC green power cables

Postby bwarshawsky » Wed Feb 04, 2009 1:15 am

Any developers out there that need a bunch of the OLPC green power cables? (note these are for developers, and do not have wall warts attached - just cables w/OLPC jacks) I have about 800 and will not be needing them. Happy to give them up for the cost of shipping.

Send me a message if you're interested in them.

Thanks!

Wow! These would be great to experiment with solar panels and alternate power supplies without having to find the right jack size! I'd be interested in maybe 20 (since you have so many).

I am also interested. I run the OLPC-SF-Repair center in conjunction with OLPC-SF users group. Aside from repairing XOs we've done some experiments alternate power sources, solar and such. I'm also interested in ~20 cable assemblies, please let me know what you want for shipping to zip 94112, and how you would like me to pay for shipping.
Thanks much,
Joachim

I likewise would like a couple, but seeing as I am in the UK I am guessing that shipping would be a lot. Any idea how much it would be for a few cables to the UK? I am guessing that tey are sturdy enough to not need any packing material and a padded envelope would be fine.

It would probably be easier for you to take a 10 min drive up 101 to potenco to pick it up from him :wink:

Ooooh, nice! I was afraid I would need to buy a couple of perfectly good AC adapters and cut the bricks off!

PM sent.

Sorry for the delay on the responses. Everyone was looking for 1-5 and I've got a ton of material and not a lot of time. I've decided to give the cables to the OLPC-SF users group. They may choose to make them available to folks looking for small quantities. I'll let them respond to y'all if they want.

Did these ever go to anyone interested in actually distributing them? I'd still like to buy a couple for tinkering.
