"MacPac" POWER CABLE KIT

A "plug and play" power cable kit for your Mac mini! No more cable splicing!!

Carnetix is pleased to announce the only "plug-and-play" power cable solution for the Apple Mac mini and your CarComputer application! The "MacPac" power cable kit connects your mini to the CNX-CA-P1900 DC-DC regulator to provide a quick and simple automotive installation. You are no longer required to cut and splice your Apple AC adapter (brick). The MacPac provides a pre-wired cable between the P1900 and the Mac mini, and includes all power and control signals necessary for full automatic startup and shutdown of the mini. The MacPac is fully compatible with the original Mac mini as well as the new Intel-based mini. (Note: Users of the CNX-P1900 V2.0 regulator and Intel-based mini will need to add a "resistor mod" to their P1900. Please check HERE for the P1900 V2.0 resistor mod).

The MacPac kit includes a Y-cable adapter that is installed between the mini's power button and the motherboard. This allows you continue to use the original Mac mini power button as well as the P1900. The MacPac and Y-cable allow you to easily remove the Mac mini from the car so that you can take the mini inside for software tweaking or updates. When indoors simply use the AC adapter that came with your mini.

The MacPac also provides access to the P1900 secondary output, DelayOn amp control, and ground via seperate wires.
