    Here's the problem. I recently bought a Ziplinq USB charger, which
    works perfectly for charging my phone from the USB port on my
    notebook. What worries me is that I have to use the DC to DC booster,
    whice means I have a very large assembly plugged directly into the
    power connector on the phone. It's just waiting to get knocked and
    broken, IMHO.

    What I'd like to do is get a short extension cable, not for length,
    but as a way of mechanically disconnecting the charger from the phone.
    Nobody makes such a thing, so I figured I'd build it myself. Except I
    don't know what size connectors to get.

    It looks to be either 2.5 mm or 2.1 mm o.d., but I have no idea the
    i.d. of that connector.

    Any ideas?

    Any pointers to where I can buy one?

    Thanks in advance.
