Thank you for your quick response. This has proven very useful, but after some consideration, I think it may be better to wire a new plug onto it.
Thanks once again, Lewis.
Do you mean that you intend to remove the microUSB connector and replace it with something else? Or do you think that the RPF should redesign the B+ to use a different power connector? In either case, what connector would you suggest that is near universally recognized and available?
(I should note that barrel connectors are like the old joke about standards, and the Cubieboards, which use a barrel connector, perforce com with a USB to barrel connector cable. This has the knock-on effect of being generally unable to pick your own--single--cable length. One could use a USB male A to female A as an extension, of course, but then you have multiple connection points to go wrong.)
