Hello.

 

I got a Deco M5 mesh wifi system.  I am looking forward to install one of the devices on a wall; the issue is with the power adapter (not long enough).

 

I wan to use a PoE splitter (TP Link TL-POE1R), but I need to be sure about the Deco's barrel diameter to get the adapter.

 

- External diameter : 5.5 mm

- Internal diameter: 2.1 or 2.5 mm? (not sure if it is 2.1mm or 2.5 mm).

 

Can you confirm the diameter so I get the right size adapter?

Hello,

 

Sorry that the Deco M5 doesn't support PoE and it needs to be powered on by the supplied power adapter, which it's a Type-C connector.

 

Good days.

@TP-Link_Deco 

The versions shipping now are not USB-C, I've got three V3 units and they are not USB-C.

I seem to recall seeing that USB-C power was dropped after V1, and V2 M5 onwards were supplied with 12V/1.2A barrel connector.

Now the question still stands, what size...
I'm going to try getting a POE converter to test this out as I need to do the same. Will get back with an update on the outcome at some point.
