Hi,
With the know heat problem of GuruplugServer+ i replace the power supply.
So i bough an external power adaptater with femal connector.

You need 5v / 3A. I read somewhere here that 2A is just enough, but a little bit more is better, so 2.5/3A is ok, especially if you connect some USB/esata HDD.

I open the plug .. and lose the warranty



I solder the femal connector on the output of original power supply. I advise to set the + (red) in the center of the connector, so be aware of the direction.

Why i keep the power supply of the plug ?
I haven't another connector between power supply & computer part of the plug.
The power supply of my plug isn't dead, so i wanted keep it fonctional.
And there not anough place to have a two connector in the box.

WARNING : It's better to disconnect (unsolder) the power supply of plug. Else, if you connect the extermal adaptator AND the power supply you will burn your plug  Roll Eyes

Finnaly make a hole on the opposite side of USB/RJ45 connectors. For me an 8mm hole.
And put back the power supply :


Finnaly putback the computer part and reassemble everythings.


Well it's done & works !!!  Grin
I hope it will be helpfully for other users  Wink
