that plug and socket made a neat little hole in my gt2560 motherboard have replaced with the new model with screw connectors but I am also adding a power mosfet to take the load completely of the board for the price well worth it

surely such a choice of plug/socket must have cost the makers a fair number of sales in the constructors market!
In actual fact, I have had one of these arc inside the socket (un-noticed) to the extent that it DE soldered itself, and only became apparent when the heated build plate was in use. You have been warned ! =)

Yeah, I've seen the damage some people have encountered too. I've taken the precaution of cleaning any oxidisation on pins and sockets and
applied WD40. I'll definitely be keeping a watchful eye on it al the same.

Do I espy a power lead robbed from a PC's innards there? :)

Yes... I couldn't find that style plug anywhere else. Its actually an extension cable that i will splice onto my power supply
