How do I terminate the wires for this Android device?

I received this device and the following specification from the manufacturer:

"Power Supplier 18-36VDC
Power Consumption =< 25W

What component do I need to use to terminate these copper wires so I can power this device?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

Android device ??
Termination means connecting like with a plug. Do you want to connect it or power it ?

That looks like some type of mobile radio. 18-36vdc is an odd connection voltage unless that piece is made for a very specific setup.
There are many 36vdc 2A power supplies but I'm thinking you need some type of mobile power supply.

Give us some more details.

I would like to power it on. It is a small screen with an integrated Android player. It's from a Chinese OEM and there's little other information on it.

Thanks!

There are many AC adapters available. They all come with plugs that can be cut off. Since you are working with DC there is a polarity to the connection.

Basically any power supply from 18vdc to 36vdc at least 2amps or at least 25 watts.
Higher amperage or wattage is ok.

Just some random picks....

Am I correct in that this will be able to power on the device?

Good purchase..... a handy piece there. 0-30VDC 0-5A.

That will do it.

Although that bench power supply will be able to power your device, I wouldn't use it as a permanent power supply.
Adjustable bench power supply is meant for testing devices and voltage is easily changed. Also, it may have slightly different voltage between power cycles.

You are better off with non adjustable power supply for permanent solution.
There are many SMPS available with screw terminal, which you can just connect the power wires from your device.

Instead of showing pictures of the wires... How about showing the electrical jacks/sockets on the device?
