Anyone happen to know the part or type number for the QL power plug and socket?

Virtually impossible to get, but if we know the part or type numbers we can watch out for them, and I can add the part number to the diagrams on my site.

It seems also impossible to find any connector with the correct distance between holes :(
The famous CPU fan connector is very similar, but its holes don't match perfectly the QL pins.

True - but it's close enough that a printed shell that could accept the pin sockets or similar pin sockets from another connetor type might just work :-)

The power range is from 3 Ampere to 5,6 Ampere. The two units in the middle are still available, but I'm afraid the main problem would be the shipping costs (from Italy).

Got either of those left Cristian?

Hi Chr$,
The two in the middle are still available for the moment, but someone else is intested and I'm waiting for its possible confirmation or denial.
Meanwhile I may give you technical specs via PM so you can choose which one you would prefer.
