I want to connect an external PSU to the 2/4 GPIO pins. Link to PSU
I didn't know a barrel to microUSB adaptor exist and I cut off the connector, so I now have 2 exposed wires coming out of the PSU.
I want to know what the best way would be to physically connect these to the pins?
I wanted to use Dupont connectors but the wires are 16AWG and I'm not sure they will fit (and I don't have any around to try)
Are there any other suggested ways to connect directly to the pins or to "break-out" the pins just for this purpose?
Note: I know that connecting directly to the GPIO will bypass the builtin protection mechanisms. The PSU is 5V regulated (5%). I am not sure if this counts as a comprehensive test but I measured it with the MinMax function of my Fluke Min==Max==Avg==5.135V
