I got this laptop off a friend, he recovered it from water damage. He told me the power connector had some issues, but they were easily overcome....well, not so easy now. There's a break in the wire somewhere, along with the broken connector on the inside. Here's my idea. I want something unique, something original, and something I know will hold up. I'm thinking about using an S-Video connector and mounting it elsewhere, connecting the female plug to the board using 16g or 18g wire. I'm using an iGo charger, so I'll have to add resistors to the line before the male plug, but that's not a problem....will an S-Vid connector hold up for a power connection? Or would I be better off using an RJ-45 connection or something along those lines?
